FWIW, I don't really feel that this is true. It would have (perhaps)
made it harder to ignore what the module list was, but it was already
pretty hard to ignore. I suppose if a GEP is just a way to cover our
asses with people who don't pay attention to the lists, then yes, it
would fill that role, but otherwise I don't see how it actually _solves_
the zvt v. vte problem.

To put it another way: if the people involved don't want to agree (see:
theme management) GEPs are just a more formal way for them to argue. It
doesn't actually solve anything.
