I disagree with this. Why do most people think object-oriented source code
is a great idea, but an equal number of people oppose finely-grained
shared object files? Many of the advantages are the same. The main
complaint seems to be that it's too hard to keep track of them all, but
who's the target audience here? People who compile the software, or people
who use the software? (And don't say they're the same group! That vision
limits GNOME to a niche.)
