Community will discuss it and do what's the best for the project (and yes, project is not single person who has their wishes). Personally I woulnt complain about that separation if done properly, but just don't see a reason for it. Most of the stuff you don't need/like you can disable at compilation level.

Well, you can count me as fourth, but I don't judge this patch is good 
or bad. Things can be worked out, but there was no way to discuss in 
this thread. Well, just Nicolas helped (as usually), but how to help 
when you have to focus on massive hate, not technicals issues :P

See above.

My point is claimed in the first sentence anyway, the rest is just a 
comment I guess :P
