Some people will want it, just because they can.

A dumb reason to want a lens that isn't going to be anything special. Sub-par from the few samples in the other thread.

There's a whole lens club for such people ƒ1.2 only. They not only want to shove the "look I have an ƒ1.2 lens" in your face, they want to have a thread just for it's images. God knows you wouldn't want your images getting mixed in with those unwashed ƒ1.4 images.
