Was there a decision made about co-maintainers?   I didn't follow that
thread to its conclusion.  I would be willing deal with the backlog in
the issue/support queue until a decision can be made about the long
term direction if it helps avoid bypassing the .js files.  I think we
can find a solutions that restore the 4.7 functionality without
comprimising on long term compatibility with TinyMCE framework.

I think if the hack I wrote last night can be flushed out as a patch
that restores the GUI role based customization, that will go along way
towards putting out this fire.  Another thing that might help is a
dojo-style video showing users how to customize their theme .js.  I
think I can get a someone to do that in the next day or 2.

Hopefully that will give drupal-id a chance to share his thoughts.  It
may turn out that drupal-id isn't up to the task of maintaining the
TinyMCE module and we have no option but to revert the the patched 4.7
version, but I'd like the discussion to be driven by the long term
benefits of each direction rather than the short term issue of a large
number of very vocal users who don't want to edit a comma separated
