The shr people keep using their shr scripts and tree and angstrom do the
same to pick two examples. No, we're not all going to use OE-Core alone,
that was never the point. So why should we single out poky either? Ok, a

and don't plan to start :)
The patches do translate easily, if they didn't I'd be going (more)
