I was referring to this statement from Tue, 23 Aug 2016: "This part has 
not changed since 2009. So it's probably something wrong on your side."

There is no consensus on this list.  Not for me refactoring libgeda, not 
for you extending the use of Scheme, not for *anything at all*.  The only 
available options are to leave anything as it is, or to improve things 
over time.  That's what I'm trying to do.

If you don't like it, you are free to articulate what you don't like about 
it, and why.  Like probably most people on this list, I'm open to 
constructive feedback.

I've understood your previous criticism, however, to be mainly about that 
it involves changing things, and that I'm not doing things using Scheme, 
which unfortunately isn't too helpful.  (Please correct me if I'm wrong.)

I don't want that, either; that's why I'm working on better integration.

This sounds a lot like "please go away and do something else", which 
unfortunately has been the standard response to potential contributors for 
some time.

Which additions are you planning to remove?  Maybe someone on the list 
would like to volunteer maintaining them.
