That's why I said "seems", I haven't looked closely. But historically
bloat and excessive OO-ness have gone hand in hand. I don't want this
to turn into a C vs C++ thread, besides the most bloated program on my
desktop (Evolution) is written in C, using an object oriented design.

This could have been working everywhere a year ago if the distros had
pushed for it at all. dmix was presented at *last year's* LAC for
crying out loud, but not even SuSE pushed for it until a few months ago.
It would have given them a big advantage over other distros too. Maybe
they all just had bigger fish to fry.
