So, you consider it an unprofessional response if we are not falling
over our feet in adopting a from-scratch rewrite of a core component
that has not even been field-tested in any release yet ? Compare to
the approach that Canonical takes to new things like, say GNOME3.. I
think you will see some similarities.

themable) do not really overlap very well with what we want to achieve
with GNOME3.

Anyway, you are already pissed off, so probably best to stop...
