please stop comparing lengths... that will lead us nowhere... all this
energy could be used to try (at last) to create a living community
around XaraLX and to provide the world something nice and whole.

Of course XaraLX has nice features on paper... but the point is there :
these are mostly *potential* features as far as linux is concerned.

At the moment Inkscape is an oss project alive and moving forward (
2000+ posts on the three las monthes on devel list, 1200+ commits for
the same period) while  XaraLX is an aborted semi-oss project (14 mails
including the current troll and zero commits).

So please don't attack grinders like Miguel de Cervantès hero... that
will lead xaralx nowhere :(

Community building is  eveything but a simple thing to do... and you can
trust me : fighting like that will never be good as far as community
building is concerned.

my 2 cents,
