It wasn't directed at anybody. All I was trying to say is that we
can't just claim we ignore tradition. Fedora after all is Unix:

Maybe. But I still don't see how you can eliminate the blinking
cursor for all the other X apps. Do you propose to nuke it there
as well? If not, why do it in the terminals? If yes, i just can't
see how we're not going to upset a lot of users.
