Personally, as a TDE user, I would like to see a focus on making TDE more polished and more robust.  What it doesn't need is feature creep.  Some modern niceties, sure, but what brought us back to TDE was a great desktop manager that WORKS.  I would like to see it stay that way.  If CPU cycles can be freed in the process, GREAT!  If not, I don't see CPU's getting any slower.

We would not release two versions of Trinity. I'm seeking only a team of people to investigate what can be done to create a Trinity Light. What features can be disabled during the compiling process? Which Control Center settings can be changed? Etc.

The goal is to create a wiki article about creating Trinity Light. Who actually releases such a version is something downstream packagers and users decide.

As a close friend often would quip, those are the kinds of problems we want to have. :)

Basically, more users should mean more developers too. But if not, more users is still a good thing. :)
