I absolutely agree that this is a great improvement! But you have not solved how to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH without sourcing something...

The system will also provide additional configurability in controlling
paths and stuff -- which you can ignore as you are not interested in it --
why do you care.  Anyway yes people will be able to relocate entire
installations and change paths in a config file, will be able to integrate
stuff with the native filesystem etc etc.

The default will remain what it is now -- GNUstep system/local domains.
But this additional configurability will be supported.  If you want to
convince people not to use it, do that, it's Ok, fight the heresy and
evangelize them all! :-)

But that configurability will be there soon, because a considerable amount
of users need/want it.  That's a fact of life.

They want it because they want some perceived functionality boost. What is this boost? Because I want to be able to do something stupid does not mean that my stupid ideas should be integrated into a (almost entirely) functional, great product.

I see I'm not getting anywhere, all I ask is that you do not clutter something beautiful with an on-looker's fantasies.
