Comment (by dustin):

 Please keep the kidding out of this bug.  This is a serious request, and
 not the first time I've heard it.

 My position is that the effort required to make this change, and the user
 confusion that would result, *far* outweigh any increase in Buildbot's
 inclusiveness.  If someone is willing to put in that effort to produce a
 patch, and it has no disadvantages for users or developers (compatibility,
 code complexity, user confusion), then I'm open to merging it.

 And to be clear to anyone embarking on that journey: that's a high bar,
 and it's not clear to me it's possible to meet it.
