I'd like to think that discussion about proposed modules would be informed
by actual use [1] of the proposed modules, *whoever* posts about it. It has
been proposed for GNOME, it's been around for a while, and it's not like
it's hard to install with jhbuild.

It's suboptimal, and not entirely appropriate to comment on proposed modules
without exposure to them, and I think my reaction was fairly reasonable
given that you'd stated "basically no integration with GNOME", etc., etc.

For everyone else listening in -> don't be surprised if you get flamed for
not testing before you post! jhbuild is just a checkout away! :-)
