Sorry, Rahul, i disagree with this. I try to get through the redhat
and fedora devs that we, the users (about 5 now if i count right),
just want to see this changed!
Redhat is eager to change things when they might get in trouble if
they have it in.. like codec support. You guys are killing out more
then enough in other packages to save your own asses and you tell us
that you want to follow upstream.. i agree on that with CODE changes.
i disagree on that with config changes! config things are just the the
values set by the creators that they think are best to use. That
doesn't make them THE best settings out there. Don't be so freaking
hard on config changes! And if it must change upstream then do so!
redhad is the lead dev of both fedora and gnome so everything
regarding this config setting is in redhats hands.

Or do you want me to submit a bug report to suggest that config
changes should be allowed in fedora! but code changes shouldn't
(unless it could possibly end up in patent lawsuits)

I am just trying to get a clear signal out that there is something in
fedora that the people using fedora want to see different
