I fully agree with that. It's stable release for a reason, not the time to 
experiment with something so fundamental as this.

So, where has this been discussed before? Are you refering to the split 
release proposal between frameworks, workspaces and apps? If so, that's at the 
earliest post Frameworks 5 material, but as there is no firm support for that, 
I suppose even Frameworks 5 timeframe will still see our monolithic releases, 
until we decide (not just discuss!) to do otherwise.

If it's about something else, could you provide a pointer, because I seem to 
have missed that discussion.
