Except that there's only so many hours during the day, and I (the bluez,
and gnome-bluetooth maintainer in Fedora, and upstream gnome-bluetooth

new installs and upgrades, but allow it for removal afterwards, be my
guest. Otherwise, the majority that want things just to work will keep
enjoying the current state of affairs.
