And please stop the name calling, you have been treated with respect
here, we expect at least that from you.

Maintainers do not do everything contributors want for a variety of
reasons: Yes, your idea might be great, and might save us 40k of code,
and  might enable a floppy-installation of mc.   But the maintainer has
to carry-on, fixing bugs, improving the code, understanding the code.

Not everyone has the same goals, some people want features, some people
want to fit things in a 64k segment.   

I already pointed out to Linux.   Few people run "stock" Linux, most
people run a distro-fork-Linux.   There is nothing wrong with that.

Try to get Linus to add ifdefs support for the PalmPilot on the main kernel.
