All of engineering involves compromise. There is no point in waiting for a perfect solution to an engineering issue if that solution is so far away nobody wants to wait. The compromises become political discussions and we have seen plenty of them already. As its 'the masses' that will implement the solution, not the idealists, its time to go with the compromise that has been hammered out elsewhere ... unless of course the idealists have a patch already. -- Regards, Roy Bamford (Neddyseagoon) a member of gentoo-ops forum-mods trustees
