When you've got a developer who simply refuses to make their project work
with other peoples either by offering no solution or refusing to take
small patches for features on fairly narrow grounds the question in my
experience is not if but when there will be a fork. That may well be an
amicable forking or something that is a set of patches pretending not be
a fork for a while but in the end pragmatism usually wins.
