freshmeat has had only a tenuous link to reality for some time now.

So cdrecord is the most important program on earth to Jörg...

But applying your earlier logic, no-one should work on Hurd until there is a
demand for it...  circular argument, I think.

Anyway, as I think we're all aware, Jörg's views on GNU tools have consumed
many characters without making any development of his views because everyone
who programs anything on a GNU system is clearly insane because there are
better non-free tools that we "should" be using, in his opinion.

Can I ask people to leave this exercise in futility?  I certainly am.
