 For the record, sending an email is to start the conversation, the plugins
 team won't simply close the plugin, they'll explain the consequences of it
 and verify it's what's intended by the author. That requires a response
 from the registered email address.
 In this case, the registered plugin author is posting, and the SVN shows
 that was the obvious intent, and in the event an error was ever made,
 nothing is irreversible either.
