Actually, most of the so-called "fruitless" discussions here have been
fruitless because you've made up your mind ahead of time, and stubbornly
refuse to see anyone else's point-of-view.

And then, after the discussion has gone on and on and on, and you've run
out of technical arguments, or just grown weary, you resort to
dismissing those who argue with you by means of a generalized
"put-down", exactly as the line above.

In any case, this whole discussion is indeed silly, because we can have
OE generate and package kernel images in any format we need,
simultaneously -- those wishing to use kexec need only install the
correct ipk package, and no modifications to your Qi need be made at
all.  Easy - and no need for put-downs or smart remarks (whether it's
technically better or not is completely irrelevant, of course).
