Well, but the simple fact is that much of GNOME is not written that way,
heck you cannot even run firefox that way. It's a very nichey usecase,
and broken in almost any program we have, except the most trivial... So,
disabling this officialy in GNOME is just an act of honesty, and doesn't
technically change too much...
