Dear Sun Microsystems,
I wonder if the mythical "Project Indiana" consists of patches like these which among other strange things make the Avahi daemon just a frontend to the Apple Bonjour daemon. Given that Avahi is a superset of Bonjour in both functionality and API this is just so ridiculuous -- I haven't seen such a monstrous crack in quite a while.
Sun, you don't get it, do you? That way you will only reach the crappiness, bugginess and brokeness of Windows, not the power and usability of Linux.
Oh, and please rename that "fork" of Avahi to something completely different -- because it actually is exactly that: something completely different than Avahi.
