I am saying "random" because people (including me) will start to use
whatever the auto-completion is offering. And we all know that the
proposals of the auto-completion are rather random at times. You can
see that in Pharo, Seaside, Pier, Magritte, ... over time packages
tend to blend. Whatever you add now, you cannot easily remove

Thank you.

Now this makes me wonder how I should behave if I am not allowed to
say why I think that Pharo is on the wrong track?

You want me to shut up and fork from Pharo 1.3? I guess this is only
way, because with the inclusion of RB into Pharo 1.4 people that want
to use the original version and everything that depends on it (maybe
this is just me?) are locked out.
