Let me explain. Lets take the freedesktop menu spec as
an example. its a relatively big spec and everytime a
implementation is created by kde,gnome,xfce and rox
there is a chance that they may do something slightly
different where things might be ambigous or where they
interpt it differently

am just saying that the we have a high chance of
having some obscure bugs in the implementation. whats
wrong with sharing code as much as possible to avoid
