I was expecting that kind of reply, but I think the email was worth a 
try anyway :).

I was using that as an example of Mageia dong something to Gnome that 
wasn't upstream. Since what I was suggesting isn't upstream.

Well I guess really in general there should be a lot of extensions in 
the repo's for Gnome Shell, and not just for shut down? I mean 
extensions give people more choice on what can be done with Gnome, just 
like Firefox extensions give people more choice in what can be done with 

Personally I think it would be a rather good thing from a user point of 
view, if Gnome Shell became much more like Firefox, as in had many 
extensions available for it.

Well yes extensions should never delay the release of Gnome itself in 
distros, or in general.
