I didn't mention the bonobo before, since we had discussed it on irc,
but I entirely agree. It does not (or should not, and does not in
theory) affect the app itself. All I think you want is for the control
to be compatible with stable (there actually are evo users that don't
build from cvs on a daily basis o-:). So really, the only thing I would
like to see clarified is how far builds depend on it. Obviously,
nothing bonobo should be depended upon by a non-gnome build, but will
gnome builds depend on it or will it be an ifdef?
Regardless, I don't think anyone disagrees/disputes this with you
