      LFS users are not weird people. Canonical worker did broke my Debian testing Xfce system with his graphics driver packages and after messing with Debian packages four days, I was dreaming about the Slackware distribution or compiling everything by my self.

        I hope they do the same thing for apps... approximately 95 packages for stinking little programs.

          It used to be like that after the xfree86 fork. Unless my memory fails me, the last non-modular package was 6.9 in the mid 2000s.
          The cool thing was that upgrading from xfree86 to xorg was seamless. The split was a bit odd but nothing broke.

                No. Development slowing down would be no stabilization of API and no release.
