Because to do otherwise is to unnecessarily limit what we can achieve
and unnecessarily regress from what we have now.  I thought that'd be
a pretty huge step backward for, well, as I've pointed out elsewhere,
less functionality and more work.

Eh?  I didn't realised Sugar prescribed that much about the OS it ran
upon.  In fact, I suspect LTSP people are going to surface in droves
and beat you to a pulp in parallel :).  Or at least point out that
it'd be really nice if Sugar didn't require a whole different OS for a
different user's Sugar desktop environment.

Indeed - I guess that'd be fine.  Your suggestions were interesting.
