I haven't said that the 'general' repository should be removed, have I?

But such a wide spread and good framework like TYPO3 should have high 
quality, flexible and extendable basic extensions for the most common 
needs. Most of the other CMS do - and there might be a reason for that.

TYPO3 could be so much more - but ... ah, just forget it - I'm not in 
the mood for that now.
