The plan is not to ship it as long as nobody packages it. But for somebody to package it he will *really* need time and packaging skills. And if he is not a DD he will need one with also quite a lot of time to review and sponsor the upload. > Assuming the latter, wouldn't that mean that each application will have to > ship its locally bundled version, resulting in dozends or hundrets of per- > package copies of the module of significant size? The packaging problem remains the same so it means that those apps will either need a way to not use it's functionality or not be shipped at all. -- Some consider UNIX to be the second most important invention to come out of AT&T Bell Labs after the transistor.
