To be clear, at the time of the discussions, we were considering it. But
the product - and direction - have evolved, and the value, necessity, and
tradeoffs of it aren't appropriate for us.

That said, I think it still serves a use case and a population, and still
think in its isolation, it's a solid approach to the problem it sets out
to solve.

So I think the rough consensus is still there, even from us. Just not the
running code.
