This is a standard problem with free software developers. Forks, rewrites, embedded code copies, hundreds of different editors/music players/etc. This is a social problem that will probably never go away,
And to put a finer point on it, it is a political problem. For many of us, it is far easier, and more satisfying, to develop and distribute an alternative to xyz than to get the people who control xyz to see things our way and cooperate to distribute our work.
