OK. But even in that case, I'm sure you could see how if the
artwork is designed for 'the main spin' for one set of users (such as
enthusiasts, whatever that means) and the code is designed for
a different set of users (such as general desktop users, whatever
that means) that there is inevitably going to be conflicts.

... ? Part of the whole purpose is to have different spins for what
people want to do with Fedora software, whether it's the Games spin,
the Education spin, the XO/Sugar spin. Maybe I'm misunderstanding you.
