That's what the KDE and GNOME people said a few years ago. Considering
most of our desktop components have been fully or partly rewritten since
the cleanup could have been largely finished by now otherwise.

It would take a long time, but if the right people agreed with it we
have enough code churn for other reasons it would be done in a few years
without special efforts. You just don't have to think about it like a
6-month expensive task force.
