I find the fact that there is this much argumentation against something that:

1) isn't even proposed for Fedora at the moment
2) isn't even complete (or close to) in the distro it _is_ proposed for
3) none of this discussion is taking place on any list relevant to the
actual subject

a bit hilarious.

I think I'll just start new threads with subjects like "Arch Linux
moving towards KDE as default" or "Gentoo moving towards razor package
management" just to see how much time this community is capable of
wasting.  It should be lolz.
