The trend in this thread amongst talented devs is that this would be an epic failure.
Well I don't know why those other talented devs work, but I know why I do so I can only speak for myself.

This is extremely true.

So they scattered more and more throughout the years, what will magically make them finally collaborate in a group to do something meaningful, without some drastic changes being made?
As I said, Stefan needs to do his part if anything is going to change.

And, note that Bell said the team members would still be able to work on their own projects where they wish. It would not require the team members to work in a group if they don't want to, but it would make it easier I believe.
