Comment 3 for bug 1119420

Unless I misinterpret the action, the disabling of whitelisting seems to be a move to force developers to support appindicators. But some developers, like the truecrypt guys, don't look like they ever will, so it only ends up hurting the users (since whitelisting worked fine).

If whitelisting were going to be completely removed, I could understand all this... but since it's still supported for Wine and Java, I don't get why the Unity devs want users to run into broken programs and switch desktops.
