    I agree. You could ask a hundred people to define “bloat” and you’d get a hundred different definitions. In my mind core should be left as lean and mean as possible with added functionality left to plugins.


  2. @Brad – Don’t get me started. I took my fight to the WordPress Dev IRC channel and it looks like I’m fighting a fight I won’t win. I’ll just have to agree to disagree.

    @Len – Yeah. When do you think features should stop being added to core if they can be added by way of plugins?

    @Jeffro – Man that is a tough question and truth be told I’m kind of torn on the issue. On the one hand I want to see the core remain lean with extra functionality left up to plugins while on the other hand I’m not so sure that is a good idea from a security perspective. Plug “wordpress” in to the search engine at milw0rm some time and you’ll see what I mean.
