These meta-discussions lead to no conclusion apart from that there were
n people for, m people opposed and both parties argue that x people
would've been on their side if they would have cared to answer.

So the options are:

1) come up with and implement 2-n cool $frobnitz applications.
when people tell you should have used the excellent metapeel language
  instead, you can politely tell them that you have already done the
  work and they can put out and demonstrate by code how metapeel is so
  much better or they can shut up.
2) forget about it

I am opposed to "wishful thinking" additions to the base system without
any real evidence of the actual usefulness.

I said severalt times that this is not wishful thinking, but based on some need. But I was asked to discuss the general case first, which is what I did.
