Discussion on: Vue's Darkest Day

I browsed through HN, Reddit, the comments here. There's a strong majority of Devs who chose Vue even though React was much more popular, especially 1-2 years ago, and by being more popular it also made it easier for them to find a new job/gig. So the reason they chose it was because they found it easier to pickup, more intuitive, with less boilerplate, without ugly stuff like this.handleClick = this.handleClick.bind(this);. I actively filtered 80% of the job offers I had 2 years ago and went with a Vue project.
I fail to see how setup() { dump everything here } responds to these needs. I would bet actual money if this RFC becomes reality (seems like it) that's going to be quite a big popularity hit for Vue. (sadly, because I really liked it.)
