Just because you don't think that's what's happening doesn't mean that it isn't. Not to mention, OSS' strength is the organic nature with which it develops. ie, you'll see a continual divergance and convergence effect over and over again. With the environment decided what's necessary and what it isn't.

This entire stupid call for get everything working under one banner is a flaw and disease. In fact, you want diversity so you can choose smarter solutions and once the smart solution is realised, it needs to be rallied around and moved forward, people are still getting used to this, because until recently OSS development wasn't nearly as large scale and as diverse as it has been in the last couple of years, that's right, 2 maybe 3 years.
