I am genuinely puzzled by your email. In what way do you feel that this
issue is currently not receiving "the appropriate amount of fairness",
and in what way do you feel that the provided links help in improving

In particular, reading through the 2004 ticket in its entirety only
confirms in my mind that the work I did on in-place sort back then was
intended as an internal optimisation to save memory memory and CPU, and I
am still of the opinion that if, back in 2004 someone had pointed out that
my optimisation failed to strengthen weak refs, then I would have regarded
it as a bug and fixed it.

Technology is dominated by two types of people: those who understand what
they do not manage, and those who manage what they do not understand.
