We do talk about it every now and then - I am not in favor of putting
GGI into the m68k kernels in its current state, but I do not try to
tell Geert what he should do and what he should not (in fact I do not
like to discuss his work like this when I know he is away).

If somebody in the m68k camp decides to run with GGI and help develop
it and they can show it to be a better solution than what we have now,
yes then I will consider it, but not before that.
