Sure, but I think you'll be surprised at the number of enhancements that
have already gone in to the 2.0 desktop. This is more of a developer issue,
however - there is no significant change for users here.

We have to weigh up the benefits of continuing the development of profterm
and gnome-terminal, considering our schedule. Do we continue to work on a
difficult codebase in gnome-terminal, or fall back to a simpler codebase
with a very clear maintainer?

Havoc has committed to this work, so whilst this is a late change, I don't
believe it is costly to our schedule or development time at all.
