but that's the thing, to some (e.g. me) ten separate processes that each
do a fairly small thing with understandable interfaces between them is
an *enormous* benefit over one bigger thing that does all that in an
integrated fashion. to the point that even if the one big thing would
have nice,additional features, I would still opt for the decomposed

obviously you have a different opinion and that is your good right, but
you have to accept that for a lot of people this *is* important. that's
why having the choice would be great!
