So you'd rather prefer he did this in github?

I mean yes, ideally everyone would work on whathever i want them to work on, 
but since this won't happen, can we try to make KDE a nice and welcoming place 
to challenge eachother ideas and implementations? 

I'm sure a little friendly (and yes this goes both ways in the meanthing that 
liquidshell should not piss on plasmashell) competition never hurt anyone :)
