I agree with James. I never heard something like that, is a big accusation,
and really do not help to move things forward.
As I was in the Sugar team of OLPC Association for the last 3 years,
I am absolutely sure we didn't have any direction about that,
and every decision was based on code quality or other technical reasons.
You may think code is usually accepted "as is", but that is not true.
Almost every significant piece, receive suggestions and change requests,
and after 4 or 5 proposals is accepted when all the requests are fulfilled.
