Interesting. So this is a concrete example of how your whole line of
reasoning is filled with hyperbole. It seems you are using this
hyperbole, along with mistaken notions of "freedom" and "diversity", as
a platform for trying to argue that we should be more open to "choice".

So please take this *elsewhere*. I think we should stick to technical
subjects on this list instead of coming up with wacky examples that is
beyond ones comprehension. All you have down here, Patrice, is to screw
up the SN ratio of this list even more. 

(Seriously, I don't even know why I'm on this list anymore. Maybe we
need a fedora-codemonkeys-list where we can ban people using hyperbole
instead of sticking to technical facts and reality. Perhaps, someone
could get even some work done on such a list.)
