It's not about "it's crap anyway", it's about our trade off between
completeness and getting new stuff done. Fedora has *always* accepted
major changes before they reach full feature parity with the thing
they're replacing, and I don't see any indication anyone's expecting
that to change.

Having said that I may have to go back and check things, because my
memory is that this is something everyone involved (including the devs
and fesco) knew about at the time, but it's being discussed as if it
were a big surprise.
