Hi Alex,

I'm the maintainer of the application which makes your products visible on the 
screen. So to say my application is "THE GUI". I'm the one telling you over 
and over again that I don't want KDE to focus on GUI, to not have that written 
into the vision.

Maybe you could start thinking about that. What does it mean if THE GUI 
maintainer doesn't want that? Maybe he has a better look on it with THE GUI 

Please don't completely dismiss my feedback. Think about it.
