Yes, when I said "actively refuse" I meant that the developers have been 
contacted privately and still insist on keeping the dependency, despite 
knowing told that this will make their software break on Free VMs.

Even if my proposal is adopted it would be very bad to just start 
putting programs up there without giving their maintainers a chance to 
redeem their software.

We could even be very generous and allow the project maintainers to 
submit a short quote to be used in their defense, that would show up 
along with the Hall of Shame entry.
