Could we *please* stop bashing each other before this thread turns
really nasty (and ends up on slashdot). If we stick to constructive
criticism, Im sure we can resolve this to everyone's satisfaction.

The fdo lib proposal is a compromise solution so we can have translation
in the short term and possibly configurable directories later whilst
still playing nice with fd.o and fd.o compliant apps in the meantime.
