This is *not* what I remember of the conversation, at all.

My understanding was that pretty much everyone in the room, at least those who participated in the conversation, felt that refutable destructuring was a mistake, but that we couldn't really come to any conclusions without Brendan and Andreas there, since the two of them had championed refutable destructuring.

IOW, we don't have consensus about this issue.
