A user desktop environment is a different thing to a system framework.

I also think people are insane when they try to run ConnMan and
NetworkManager at the same time, upstart and systemd, or mix dmraid
with mdraid devices.

As soon as you have 'n' applications interfacing with 'n' subsystems
doing the same thing, then you have n^2 complexity. We can't even get
applications like OpenOffice color managed, or get ICC v4 profiles
working in firefox, so asking for true runtime interoperability
between differing CMFs is just wishful thinking at best.

No, I have not. I've not written anywhere that colord interoperates
with oyranos, and I'm not overly concerned about doing so.

Why? Well, because nothing actually uses Oyranos in the real world.
There, I've said it.
