C'mon, Jannis, that's crap.  If Nick (or anyone else) thinks I (or 
anyone else) has made poor design decisions that affect the user 
experience of our desktop, I *expect* you guys to bring them up on-list 
or on IRC.

It has nothing to do with "trust" -- I certainly "trust" that everyone 
wants to do their best with whatever module they're maintaining.  But 
that doesn't mean they've come up with the best possible 
implementation... or even a good one.  Perhaps I've been overly harsh 
with how I've presented my questions and criticism, and for that I do 
apologise, but suggesting that we aren't "allowed" to offer our opinions 
and suggestions on how other parts of the desktop works is just plain 

Anyway, you win: I don't really care to participate in this discussion
