If nothing else we as a community have to learn to respect the opinion of the one doing the job especially in cases like this when someone revives an almost dead project and try not to enforce our view of the world on him/her. So in this case Konstantin (and rest of the active DTP committers) should get our full support instead of arguing like this - both sides have their views with reasoning behind it so chances to convince are close to zero. Given that Konstantin jumped in and done the work so we can get DTP back in Neon his reasoning is way more sound to me :).
