And, I have to note, I did have a real, live pony when I was a kid, so I tend to be on the side of giving programmers ponies when they ask for them.
The trouble of course, as any student of ponydynamics can tell you, is that once the kernel developers start handing out ponies as the solution to any difficult problem, the workload in having to deal with mucking them out might grow exponentially. Hence the reluctance. Worse might be better.
