Ok, the technical arguments I've heard in favor of the DM approach is
that it reduces kernel bloat. That fair, and I certainly agree with not
putting the kitchen sink into the kernel. Our position on EMD is that
it's a special case because you want to reduce the number of failure
modes, and that it doesn't contribute in a significant way to the kernel
size. Your response to that our arguments don't matter since your mind
is already made up. That's the barrier I'm trying to break through and
have a techincal discussion on.
