Frankly, this has gone beyond silly and well into the realm of

We had someone take a decision, and act on it. 


Now someone gets cold feet and reverts. WTF?!

Now, Glider is not perfect. Newsflash: neither is Indubstrial, or any of
the other options. 

More newsflash: None of the components of our desktop (or any desktop)
is "perfect". Does that mean we should simply stop releasing anything,

What we do now is to re-revert the glider patch, and accept that someone
finally had the brass spheres to cut through the (frankly pointless and
circular) endless discussion we've been saddled with for far too long
already, and actually _made_a_decision_.

If someone does not like the decision taken, I'm sure the community will
be more than happy to revisit this weighty and ponderous issue again
after 2.8. 

Meanwhile, this may be a good time for all to reflect a bit on the
virtues of acting, rather than just talking (and I'm more guilty of the
latter than most, in both my personal and professional lives, so I know
what I'm talking about here).

So: Glider it is. Now let the poor dead horse go rest in peace.
