I see this pattern so much in software development:

"here is a change to incrementally improve something"
"oh! well! this is good but could you do even more stuff to improve it even more?"

it's so fucking annoying

a while ago I made a PR to pinafore to reduce the number of taps to change instances since I saw discussion about wanting to reduce it from 4 taps to like, 2. I reduced it to 3, and I was really worried something like this would happen but it didn't! and I was very happy about that

@SuricrasiaOnline reminds me of the time I opened a PR to fix a bug that the tests didn’t cover and got told that they’d rather support people taking advantage of the bug than fix the bug for everyone else

I no longer open PRs unless asked by a maintainer
