Variety is a good thing.  Once all the world was a VAX.  Once it was all
going to be Java.  The VAX, Java, and Wayland are good things, but there
is room for others.  If someone puts their own effort into something
fringe, it is constructive, not destructive.  It may be unfashionable,
but it does not cripple progress.  If the needful functionality is
there, then source code is easy to access, regardless of whether it is
github, gitorious, a self-hosted fossil repository, or something else.
