We still have Gems, which don't play well at all with others (on a
technical basis) - witness the conflicts with the Debian team, and
what every other Unix package maintainer says about this. This proves
that this mechanism doesn't work so well if there is a size/momentum
advantage.

Also, discussing what is appropriate and not is a good way to educate
people, and to help us all learn to think more clearly in the area.
