I hope you did not think I was on the inxi's maintainer's side!  :p

I understand and agree with all your points.

Considering the maintainer's latest comments, I don't think he/she is
open to discussion.

It's too bad because I do not know any good alternative to inxi.  Maybe
it's time to solve this conky/i3status/inxi mess and roll out a
Lisp-programmable/extensible monitor/reporter.  What do you people think?

I'll go ahead then.
