I still say, "millions" of functional companies out there can't be wrong, using a top boss -> floor guy structure to get things done?
Hmmm. Are you sure about that? Today I learned that the richest 400 individuals in the USA have the same net worth as the poorest 125 ... million. I'd say that's pretty wrong, and that's largely the result of functional companies having a top boss -> floor guy structure.

Like I said earlier, I argued in favour of a new maintainer - but since nobody wanted to do it, I was happy to try the consensus approach. We don't seem to have any wildly differing visions so far.

I'm also ending this "discussion" on my end here, I'm not really sure why I even started it, must have been a pinch of frustration or something

What about soliciting for people whom the goal is to play through the various variants and full blown offshoots(Portralis post and just-pre massive rewrite, ToME stuff, Peleron's Brilliant Rebirth, etc) as a means to discover nifty ideas and implementations that are already out there but have perhaps gone forgotten/lost the spotlight for the betterment of Angband at the core? Some "Research" folks as it were aiming to enjoy/audit as they go....perhaps in the form of a contest or some such?

I don't necessarily see the Angband woes as a case of too many chefs in the kitchen so much as perhaps it being past time to take stock of the ingredients on hand and ransack the cupboards and adjoining rooms as some of the forgotten and "old" stuff still stands to be good to further enrich the stock after reducing them down.
