I'm not saying to take the exact aproach firefox has taken. Gnome could
develop some extensions which are official, but optional to use. They could
be included in distros the same way other packages are included.

Anyway, it was just a suggestion for providing advanced preferences for
power users while maintaining the uncluttered & easy-to-use with sensible
defaults gnome aims to deliver.

Something has to be considered. As jeff said in his blog linus is a kind of
user gnome has left down and because of that he has eventually left gnome.

ps: I forgot to forward the message to the list. Sorry.
