A single, unified "registry" is never the right way to go. Just because
Windows and ye olde other desktope environmente do it, doesn't mean we
should do it as well. It's ... it's not the right idea. What we have
works, and works well.

"Eat shit today: 200 million flies can't be wrong!".

Or, as the person sitting next to me decided to eloquently put it
(*cough*), "If it ain't fuckin broke, don't feel the need to fuck it up
the arse".

I'm sure you get the sentiment, anyway.
