Tie in?

This is FLOSS, right? Nobody gets to tell people what to do or not 
in the end. So if anyone wants to create 'arbitrary' extensions, 
he will. No profiles, no nothing change that.

It's a wild software jungle out there anyway and I really do think we 
have to rely on distributors to make it more handable for the average 
user, where average user refers to everyone who is for whatever reason 
not able or inclined to go out there to explore, test and learn.
