You keep bringing GNOME up as if it's vaguely relevant.

Please do. Non-specific repeated list hijacking with 'modular is bad for
my LFS setup somehow, yar boo sux' is not useful. A concise description
of your problems with a diff attached, is useful.

It's more that we don't have the manpower to do that, realistically.
There are a lot of opinions out there, so all anyone can do is continue
to do what they think is right. You can't expect anyone to be beholden
to your lists, and suddenly turn around and say 'well,
troll at arach.net.au said I was wrong, so yeah, I probably am; I'm going
to throw away two years of work and let's go back to where we were'.
