We have standards for quality of code, we do after all have to maintain
it. It needs to work, it needs to not introduce bugs and so on. The two
of us appear to have very little understanding for how programming and
design works. Just because you can't see a change doesn't mean it's not
important. gvfs e.g. plays an important part in making pretty much every
feature Jakub listed work the right way.

I would recommend that you actually examine the rationale behind
something like gvfs, do some research. And please be respectful when
asking questions.. don't start out by insulting the developers by saying
what they are spending their time on is useless without understanding
what it really is.
