Are you going to wait for another 17000 threads to be wasted before
you think it is worth to reconsider? 

Indeed, I could have fixed a reported ldns bug in the time this
happened. I blame it on Xorg and Fedora that the bug is still there :P

"possible drawbacks" of the suse solution are not there. See my previous
email on the 10 years of lack of requesting a way to disable ctrl-alt-bksp.

People involved with Fedora are passionate. That's why they are involved.
You can't have the cake and eat it too. The fact that I maintain 20
packages is the same reason I wrote 20 emails about ctrl-alt-bksp. I
want it to be done right, and where possible to suppot multiple right
ways.

There is little effort and no harm involved in the suse patch, and there
is no reason not to accomodate these people.

My last patches to the nsd package was to acocmodate chroot. I despise
chroot. There is no sane reason for it compared to selinux. But there
was little effort involved to accomodate this person, so why not. 
And now fedora is better for people who like and who dislike chroot.
That is how contributors and users should interact. Note the lack of
17000 emails on the nsd chroot modifications.
