I must have missed something, because I don't understand nor enjoy
most (any?) of the software I depend on. But as it allows me to get
the work done, even if I get crazy sometimes, I just get into the
source and try to make some sense out of it.
How many people you know that understands and enjoys any of mozilla,
gtk, pygtk, abiword, X, cairo, etc? When you get so high on the stack,
you find lots of compromises already made for situations different
than yours. And then you have to workaround those workarounds to adapt
to your specific situation. How can someone understand all that and
even more, enjoy it?
There may be some other reasons why nobody wants to tackle this task?
