And I repeat "I can't agree more, but let's not set one standard for one
piece of software and not apply it evenly to others."

Are we willing to apply the same standards to each and every piece of
software in Fedora? (*)

(*) This is a semi-rhetorical question as
  a) We all know there are a at least a few "fragile" packages in Fedora
yet we understand that there is a tradeoff between "perfect" and
"usable/delivered".
  b) Nobody here is looking for a Debian release cycle :)
