   I'm not going to start telling people to stop work on some other

The project is the Hurd.  You seem to think that I am speaking about
seperate projects, like if one would compare GNU Emacs vs. Lucid
Emacs.  I'm talking about a specific direction _within_ the project,
like should Emacs use Python as its extention language instead of Lisp
(or something equally silly) by default, and then offically allowing
for such an effort.

This has nothing to do with telling people to stop working on some
other project.

   This is a lot more like a researcher asking "which experiment
   should I do" and I'm saying, "we just don't know until we start
   doing them."

No, it isn't.  It is more like asking a researcher that the 10 years
he spent on solving a specific problem are completely useless because
the professor was unable to show the researcher what he should be
working on, since the researcher was told `work on what you consider
important'.  It is a waste of time, I really fail to see why you are
having such hard problems seeing this.
