It must be a *final* draft if you have no input from the GNOME UI list on 
the style guide this is IMHO a law of bazar style writing. The style guide
will be a moving target even after you release it if you continue as it
stands. Most of us do not intend to argue over minor points. Heck, I am
only here to make sure that you guys take internationalisation into
account, but I have followed the debate and I am getting unpleasant
feelings about this. Well, before I start flaming anyone I would like to
here Bowie's definition of "FINAL DRAFT" and "FULLY-FORMED", as I suspect
that much of the disagreement stems from the use of these terms.
