What is the need to rehash to death things which have already been
discussed at length in another thread ?
It was decided that flags wouldn't be shipped with gnome, but that the
keyboard switcher could use the flags if they are installed. So what is
the problem ? Distros/people which want the flags will install them,
people who can't/are offended by the flags won't, and everyone's happy.
