Not true.  The decision to use spatial in nautilus was done by a
lot of talking to Alex and Dave by the usability team.  It took them
awhile to convince them to do it.  So it's possible to convince devs.

In fact, I would argue that the newer maintainers are a lot less anal about
things than those in the past.  Using bugzilla and a little data, and maybe
some kind of test environment to show it. (ahem.. see prev rant. )
