I prefer proposing things, then see reactions and feedbacks, instead of
starting endless discussions, especially in the gentoo community. If you come
with precise proposition, it's easy to say yes/no to it, and to make things
evolve quickly.

So of course users are the goal, but we want to propose things, not discuss 3
months long
