 Please leave me out of that **we** for I don't think that I can provide
it (or rather want to, no interest).  But you seem to feel strong about
it, why don't you just start it?  I guess noone will keep you from
trying/doing it!  You don't need the o.k. from other developers to do
so, this is a free project.

 It seem to be because you rather like to talk about it than just
fscking doing it.

 Have fun,
Nachdem es SuSE nun endlich geschafft hat, Linux so sehr zu verunstalten, daß
es schlechter als Windows ist, bootet es nun also sogar schon auf der Hardware
von Microsoft.
