- In normal use, it will at some point fall into slow sync, sooner or
and create duplicates¹. I don't think any user would want that.
- opensync 0.2x cannot detect² the SAME/SIMILAR cases reliably.
- Thus only because of these two issues, (plus hundred two smaller
opensync 0.2x is broken, by design, inside the core - regardless of

- Fedora 11 will ship them anyway.
Only thing unclear to me is why?
