that wasn't me.  i believe you're thinking of jeff eaton.

i think drupal's "core" should contain some modules, even ones beyond 
the required 4 or 5.  but, i'm in support of reducing the # of modules 
in core, and distributing the work of maintaining modules that are 
important, but not necessarily "core".

agreed.  some things in core clearly don't need to be there, and 
contribute to drupal's (undeserved but understandable) reputation as 
"just a blogging package".
