It's not like anyone would be going around and removing options behind 
your back. You make it sound like there's a conspiracy around a corner 
and me and my four hoursmen of apocalypse are gonna go around cvs and 
force my will on everyone. That's simply not true : you as the 
maintainer will always decide where to draw the line. If you want to 
have dialog with 5000 options, that's your choice and you're free to go 
that route. And it's not like having kcfg files would force you to be 
removing options from your application. These two aren't mutually 
exclusive but completment each other.


Linux: In an insane world, it's the sanest choice.
