That blog post made me think this was a coordinated effort between various DEs
to create some apps that they all would use. Which would mean we wouldn't need a
gnome-$foo fork Cinnamon, another one for Mate, etc...

But it seems I was too naïve and that is not the case, and we're just going to
end up with one more fork as I initially feared.

I so hope I am wrong on this...
