There's nothing wrong with back-tracking on decisions if they seem to cause problems. For instance, the mozilla herd has done a lot of flip-flop on the system/internal sqlite issue, and we explained the reasons to our users and they agreed that it was useful, and a good decision. If it turns out there is no easier way of properly fixing this, we may have to split poppler-utils out from poppler. In this regard, I like how people like Maciej are spending efforts to solve the problem in new ways (PDEPEND, etc) 1. http://is.gd/9O3k2 -- ~Nirbheek Chauhan Gentoo GNOME+Mozilla Team
