What the hell does anyone need any 'blessing' for if the standard is already 
in a 'strong position'!  I mean, how much more idiotic can we get here.  
Seriously, I'm asking??

How about we elect a fd.o pope.  We could have first have KDE/GNOME elect 
'cardinal's' to a council.  This council could then meet in secret and 
through the mysteries of divine software, elect a holy pope of fd.o.  My 
money is on Waldo.[1]  We could call him Pope John Paul Waldo the 23rd, 
Archbishop of the Church of the Holy Software.

Pope Waldo could then 'bless' the standards in a christening ceremony and we 
could all rejoice with the knowledge that only comes from being born again in 

Idiotic enough now?

[1]  Sorry Waldo :)
