Aaron, please assume good intentions. We all know Albert and we all know that 
his writing reads more harsh than he intents to. I do not see any of your 
conclusions in his writing. Let's stay positive in this discussion. If we 
start to fight with each other we won't find a solution.

Technically I agree with Albert's concern that Plasmoids as app replacements 
might not be a good idea. And I read the part in John's mail as rather an 
example than an actual suggestion.
