I have to review some basic things in your series.
I did not take time to review it because I thought John told me it
would not make 17.11.

It is not marked EXPERIMENTAL in the MAINTAINERS file.

Yes, you followed the process.

It is not common to add a new library in RC2.

When doing the RC1 announce, I did not mention this library
as a possible inclusion exception in RC2, and I had no feedback:

I was really sure you were not targetting 17.11.
So I did not do the last pass review. Probably my mistake.

We are having a hard time with 17.11 release, so I would prefer avoiding
adding one more new library at this stage.
