By this logic extensions.gnome.org is doomed to failure. Curious if you really believe this.
you're extrapolating from something I didn't say.
I said that it's extremely hard to create a system that can be QA'd (and documented) effectively - not impossible, because there are few things that are outright impossible.
it's also true that everyone can set up their own system using extensions, evaluate what breaks, and learn to avoid it - locally; end users, especially enthusiasts, have a fairly high threshold for pain, otherwise you wouldn't be able to explain vim, emacs, or enlightenment. I'd rather not expose non-enthusiasts to this mess, though.
