I actually think that Erik had a very good point.

The way that Bitcoin Core did things is far from ideal (for the market). And 
we saw it lead to the problems you describe above.
But this was mostly because for over a year they ignored competitor's 
explaining the weaknesses in their solutions.

Deciding which solution is better is done by the market.

This is why I started this mailinglist, we need coordination and we need 
developers to talk about their favorite solutions. Because listening to your 
peers avoids disappointment.

We can't avoid disgruntled developers, we can provide all the tools to make 
the mature ones succeed.
