This is what happens when people are isolated from the mainstream
of kernel development - they lose access to the communal wisdom of
linux-kernel. If you feel that GGI has taken a few dead-end paths, keep
in mind that these could have been maybe nipped in the bud some time ago
if a few more senior members of this list could have lowered themselves
to talk to us and give advice and maybe even help out a bit....
