No, you just want to have the same bikeshed argument that you've had
over on the Ubuntu list here on GNOME's list.

We've had these arguments made. We've had the discussion here twice.
We've had it three times on Ubuntu's lists in the past two years I've
been involved. Anyone want to chime in from Fedora's or SuSE's
community and say how many times they've had it there?
