For those interested, these are the CSS media queries I mentioned:
Because of these, a website can automatically infer whether a user prefers fewer animations (e.g. due to vestibular disorders) or whether they prefer dark mode, based on an OS-wide setting. The "reduced motion" one is especially impressive, as it works across a wide variety of OSes – Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, even Ubuntu! https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/@media/prefers-reduced-motion#User_Preferences
Good writeup: #Rust Error Handling Survey. The discussien around the topic seems to gain momentum recently, and judging from previous pain points in Rust, I expect a good outcome, even if it takes some time.
This is the hill I will die on. Started a bug/branch to remove libcroco from gnome-shell.

Heute ist also „Buß- und Bettag“.
Also für die anderen Menschen.
Für Informatiker ist das ja jeder Tag.
Man büßt jeden Tag für die Hinterlassenschaften des Vortages und betet jeden Tag dafür dass das keinem auffällt.

You know how one of the crucial features of Free Software is that if you don't like something about it, you can modify it and run a modified version?
I think it's important that doing so is as easy as possible.
It's pretty easy for things written in scripting languages, like Python or Ruby - worst case you just sudoedit /usr/lib/python*/site-packages/whatever/app.py or sth, restart it and see if it works.
With compiled languages it's a bit harder, but distros do a lot of heavy lifting here: on many of them you can easily download a source package, modify the source code, and build a binary package that you can install with your package manager, without getting into the details of build dependencies and buildsystem of particular software.
Eg. on Debian there's `apt source`, then edit, then `dpkg-buildpackage`, on Arch it's `asp export` then `makepkg -o` then edit, then `makepkg -e`.
The worst situation is with JS.
Like... how do you even patch a JS that's coming to you from a website? The jump from casual user to casual developer is huge here.
