I completely agree that this thread is about the long-term direction and
an attempt to provide a way of reframing the problem so that various
parties don't feel backed into a corner with no path forward other than a
fork.  None of this discussion addresses the immediate concern of what is
in the 2021b release.

I stated my opinion on that topic in a different thread earlier today.
