Because unless something has changed SL does not profess to be
binary compatible with upstream; and for _many_ users that isn't
only a strong desire, but a show-stopping requirement.
It has always seemed strange to me that in our endless discussions about
education so little stress is laid on the pleasure of becoming an educated
person, the enormous interest it adds to life. To be able to be caught up
into the world of thought -- THAT is to be educated.
