I would recommend to consider the criticism, but take it with a good grain
of salt unless it is backed by something more than just personal preference.

Please go ahead and do just that.

By all means solicit review, maybe post some key patches to the
(developer) list, but don't accept random (as opposed to well-founded)
preferences as blockers if you disagree and have a better plan.

I certainly support migrating existing gEDA tools to use xorn C code.

I think limited breakage is acceptable during development if it can't
be avoided, but not for a release. And of course it's better if it
can be avoided. :)
