unfortunate choice or quote, i'd say. ;)

no, seriously, i sort of like that idea. it takes the logic of setup and

about the above problem, do you think we should simply ignore it and
drop support for "hot switching"? gnome seems to do without, anyway.
and the fine granularity (e.g., number formats, etc.). drop too?
