The "Ulrich bashing" was quite mild, I think, and it would have been inappropriate to omit it as it is completely relevant. It simply wouldn't have been possible for an outside contributor to get a feature of this complexity merged (even partially) back when Drepper was running the show. That doesn't mean that he isn't a brilliant programmer and capable maintainer (he is both), but he saw glibc as his personal cathedral.
