Not at all.  All I want is a fair review, based on good technical
information and not being name-called or judged on assumptions about
my motivations.  Not being field-tested is a completely fair
criticism, and something I can take away and reuse in a proposal for
GNOME 3.4.

As both a Canonical employee and Ubuntu developer I can tell you we
constantly review all available free software for inclusion.  While we
do not always agree on every point we agree on a lot more than we
disagree.  I'm happy to continue to discuss this on another thread or
privately if you want to.

My frustrations have certainly boiled over, but I will now resolve
those through the appropriate channels.  Apologies for the anger.
