Your missreading what I am saying.

1. I am not placing "demands"
2. I have pointed out the solution
3. I have pointed out the problem for gentoo as a distro
4. Everybodies requirements are different: unless devs get feedback on
whats important to users, how would they know.  I acknowledge that whats
important to devs is not neccessarily going to gel for the users, but
the fact that gentoo now does not have a usable desktop for a large part
of its user community should be a concern for all.
