Please stop it, both of you.

There are great usecases for applications and libraries being included
in a distribution.  That is why Fedora (and every other distribution)
exists in the first place.  There are ALSO usecases for shipping
containerized applications.  That is where much of the web development
and other application development has headed in recent times.
Ignoring that does us no good and leaves us sitting around with an
application deployment framework that increasingly fewer upstreams
want to care about.

Both types of application deployment need to exist.  If you think this
is somehow isolated to the Workstation product, it isn't.  It will be
on Server and Cloud.
