48 hours later and:
    - Some votes for repealing the CoC.
    - One vote for keeping
    - Some replies that do neither, but prefer to attack the example
      rather than the actual point of the email.
    - As suspected, a large chunk of the project's developers have
      simply not replied, hoping it just goes away or blows over, or
      don't care.

I'd say the prediction was pretty accurated. I don't forsee any change, as per
usual. Just some flames, and nothing happens, as is tradition. Can't change
a community who are not interested and/or actively hostile to trying to be
less toxic. (inb4 'I just want to write code and not do politics/etc." replies,
which really mean 'I am OK with the way it is and can't be arsed to make
it less toxic for others.')
