You should be well aware there's a history of people contributing
stuff to core and even assigning themselves as maintainers, then
disappearing. And then it falls (largely) on me to keep things
(barely) going. What happens if ptx withdraws its commitment? Can I
then send a commit that removes barebox from core? Imagine the angry
lynch mob that will show up after my head.

Adding things to core is a decision that cannot be easily reversed, so
I'd rather have barebox in meta-barebox for a while, with any needed
fixing to classes and infra in core.
