They're Trolltech Trolls, that's why ;)

It's very likely that Benoit Schillings will bring over a lot of his way of doing things, etc. into everything he touches. Now, whether or not that's a "Good Thing (TM)" will be determined by history.

There are some neat things done in the BeOS app_server, but there are also some rather curious WTF's in there as well. Hopefully, the good will be reused in the future in code and design, and the WTF's will be remembered and carefully avoided.
