I didn't notice this passage, good to know.

This paragraph focuses on the free time of a TU, but I would maintain
those packages anyway, so the time I need to maintain them doesn't
account in my free time.
Anyway, the point about a TU resigning and leaving his "unpopular"
packages behind is strong too.
As you see I am really undecided =)
