I don't agree with that.  If you want to write a server in ObjC using
GNUstep, but for constraints outside your control you have to have it in
the standard unix hierarchy (we don't always control our customers or our
managers), you want to be able to do it.  Why should I give up all the
good that it's in GNUstep just because I have a requirement to deploy the
server in standard unix locations.  Also because as soon as the constrains
go away I can just change a couple of ./configure switches in gnustep-make
and have the same software install in the GNUstep filesystem hierarchy
without any change to my server.

I can't see why forcing people to use GNOME or KDE when they could be
using GNUstep is any good.
