The variations in opinion and taste are why it's important for
us to discuss the interfaces and tweak them so that most people
are happy with them and then everyone uses them.

Your story about get_fs() still being around isn't a victory,
or an accomplishment, it's just a small failure that we've been
too lazy to fix.  But it's one that if someone did post a patch
for it, would be accepted.

And the thing you call churn, I call development and progress.
