I’m not sure that’s completely accurate (and, forgive me, a little unfair). I think everyone here is happy to head new views on things but that doesn’t mean that we all have to agree on everything.
Equally, as we’ve noted in here a couple of times, we’re not ignoring this… it’s just that we’re not always able to reply straight away (or necessarily fast, especially when you’re providing food for thought). I’m sorry if that’s frustrating, I get it, but sometimes we’re going to have to ask for a little patience.
For example, there’s some solid reasoning for maintaining a z-base32 : readability and avoiding confusion.
You argument re: ‘its not standard’, is not a strong one given a) you can use any hashing function you want with CID, as @bochaco has pointed out, that’s part of the purpose (it seems issues you have are issues with a python implementation… which can be PRd to to help everyone out there). and b) it’s proposed that this hashing function should be available in the Safe Client Libs API. So it’s going to be language independent, which is what we’re considering here. (Though props to you for diving in to a language where we don’t have an impl yet! That is massively appreciated
