Re: [Evolution-hackers] shell shutdown, refcounts etc.

Well take it out if you want, but you can fix any of the bugs it produces!

Maybe you're just forgetting how much of a pain the issue is when it occurs and how many users it affects.  Its not only the shell, its every single thing that runs (the problem is actually bigger from when everything went in-proc).
