Some thoughts about the possibilities of being "inclusive":

For KDE, a strategy used by the Romans to grow and sustain in size might be
successfull:

The Romans expanded by allowing people with "different missions" like
religious practices to exist within their empire, provided they accepted
the overall "vision" of basically being a Roman citizen abiding by defined
rules (imo our manifesto) and then gave them benefits like free public
bath, protection, etc.
So imo gtk or webcentric programs would be welcomed additions since they
diversified and expanded _the reach_ of the Empire.

Of course this topic is never black and white.
But maybe that example shows, that being more inclusive is not just
happy-people having an "illusionary, non-real world" vision here.

Greetings, Clemens.
