It's the same concept. From a "software architect" perspective, if we
design it simply so we could have as many maintainers we want, it will
be better in the long run. We can artificially enforce a two person
limit ourselves, if we want to do that.

I just have a feeling that setting a limit of 2 seems artificial, BUT,
as I said, we can discuss that later, but the code shouldn't limit it
to 2, that's just silly.
