I don't want any software to be considered "a problem" to be on this
list for purely politicial reasons. If there's anything on the list
that's just technically awful (gaping security holes, UB all over the
place, otherwise a source of major bugs...) then I think it should be
removed outright. Otherwise, if anyone thinks something is a bad fit
for the list, please raise the issue in a civil manner, without
attacking the person who added it, for the community to discuss.

I also think the wiki should just be fixed up to clarify that these
are not "recommendations", just things individual community members
found useful.
