According me this sentence explains a lot :).
It is very easy to speak, but nothing is so easy when it must be putted 
in pratice. We all would like to have a phone that support all the 
characters set and all the language and writing directions. But we must 
to don't lose contact with reality.
Which instrument to use is their choose. I think they are not so stupid 
so if they decided to don't ship any program in gtk and to prefer efl, 
qt, or whatrever, I think they have their reasons.
Fic is doing a great job. They show us the progress they do step by 
step, they share with us some decision, but remember (it is refered to 
all that make no costructive critics) the decision about which 
instrument to use is them.
We are all free to build our alternative instrument if we want it.

I think we (as comunity) we must try to have a more constructive 
approach, as many person already had. Most of us are developer, we can 
develop what we miss. Other are power user, these persons can give 
constructive ideas, suggestion, help with documentation, bug reporting.
But I think that to arrive in ML and to start to complain with Openmoko 
about the reason why they use a toolkit in place of another, or why a 
person use an automatic message, I think is not too much constructive.

So, stop with flame! :) and enjoy with Openmoko
