The EPL is supported by a strong foundation (centralised)
but has virtually no support from the community (bazaar,
individual non-Eclipse-affiliated developers using it).

“The final straw, to be honest, was probably my amazement at the volume of

d-devel, telling each other how to talk more like a pretty princess, as though
they were performing some kind of public service.” (someone to me, privately)
