That's very good to know; thanks, Scott.  It's also heartening to hear that
it's not the Ubuntu devs (for whom I generally have a lot of respect) who
are pushing this madness forward, but people who are working directly for
Canonical--rather than simply being directed by canonical.  I apologize to
any developers toward whom I've been unjustly been harsh.

My previous criticisms of certain denizens of this list stand, but at least
now it's clear that most of the Unity "culprits" are elsewhere.  Thanks for
the clarification.
