There no 'standard' by which to measure the value of change. If all
distros are doing things differently you can't single us out for
making a change that breaks cross-distro compatibility that doesn't
already exist. The only thing you've pointed to so far is LSB... are
you attempting to claim we are breaking LSB with this change?  Things
are already incompatible.. in a non-standardized way. By putting your
foot down and demanding that we stop our own process to evolve you
aren't solving the underlying problem.  Stagnation is not
standardization. No matter how we get their...cross-distro
standardization is going to involve change in how each distro
currently does things... so change is unavoidable no matter what
happens.  You are arguing for the wrong thing.
