It seems to me you could make the same argument for most of the stuff
Linux supports, I don't use ham or appletalk but I am willing to "waste
the space" so some other people can use it. This debate should IMHO be
based on the techical merrits of having ggi vs bot having it not on
such an outright selfish approach as I have just read.

If you don't like it and it's there don't compile it.

ps. To the rest of you I'm still not convinced either way on this.
