What you're not taking into account with your "meritocracy" idea is all
the quiet users of this library that *aren't* contributing patches, but
rely on the functionality of the library for their work.  If we're going
to tip zmq on it's head because a couple very vocal contributors decide
they don't like the way things have been working, it makes me very
concerned about continuing to use this project.

Is this something that I can rely on, or will it turn into an open
source project that bounces all over the place depending on the whims of
the contributor of the week?  I want people to contribute - I'm very
happy that my fixes for various platforms have been accepted without
issue - but I am concerned that project could be hijacked by someone
that has a very specific use case for it and doesn't understand the
history and philosophy of the proejct and what its current users are
doing with it.
