Is anybody strongly against XDG in 4.2? Correct me if I am wrong:

Jasper is OK and ready to code 
Olivier is OK as long as Jasper's idea (or equivalent) is used
Brian does not mind
Benny will be angry if XDG is postponed
Edscott sympathises with Benny
all others won't be annoyed if XDG appears in 4.2.
