While this was once a contentious subject, we nowadays seem to to be an agreement that Bitcoins aren't exactly fungible (as can for example be attested by the fact that the likes of coinbase track where your coins come from and what you use them for).

My question is: if a Monero-style fork was proposed to fix Bitcoin's fungibility problem, would you consider supporting it?

If so, and if – unlike the current blocksize debacle – there would appear to be mainstream consensus around that new hardfork, do you believe the current consensus mechanism (voting with bits in block headers) would actually be any kind of useful?

More specifically, given the potentially complex change that would be needed to implement that fork by the entire ecosystem around Bitcoin, does what the miners think matter in any way?
