That's perhaps my least worry. As long as they all agree that this
cooperation thingy is a good idea in general, a few flame wars then and
when are ok with me ;)
Besides that - most of these developers also have some experience with net
discussions etc and thus at least know what logic reasoning, compromises
and admittances are. I'd rather moderate a discussion between KDE, Gnome,
GGI, XFree and Kernel (Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD) developers (all
of course either vi or emacs users) all at once than a horde of would-be
c00l d00dz trying to make a Quake mod together.
(Anecdote: A friend of mine designs Quake maps and is involved in such a
mod effort. He recently told me that he's about the only one able to
somewhat influence the "project leader". No, not by reasoning. By telling
him "if you don't agree I'll flood you with really ugly pictures" etc :(  )
