After some deliberation, I approved this edit to this answer, although I considered rejecting it for being too radical a change.

It should have been a separate answer in its own right. However, this was made by a new user and the question is protected, so the user would need at least 10 rep earned on this stack.

Can this question be de-protected? Then the user can turn their edit into a separate answer, possibly earning some rep and becoming a valuable and respected user on this stack.

It collected 3 non-answers over a space of 3 months. That doesn't strike me as a huge magnet for problem answers. I think it should be unprotected, and if it does prove problematic, we can always re-protect it later.

I've unprotected it, despite the obvious potential for them to get more rep than me and end up making me look bad.
