It really seems that throughout this thread, OO seems to be one of the
big reasons for even bothering with all of these patch-rpm arrangements.
What if OO could somehow be modularized in a manner similar to X?  I
don't know how much of OO is compiled code vs data files and it may turn
out that even that doesn't provide that much of a win.  It just really
seems that trying to get all of these deltas and such will wind up
providing considerably less gain in the end than all of the effort to
make it happen.  And there would quite possibly be the nasty side effect
of things getting terribly inconsistent and turning straight into a
Windows administration-type nightmare.
