I don't think anyone wants to remove what's attracted the current user 
base. We don't have to do things the "Linux" way. For example, while 
sysinstall definitely needs an update, we still NEED a text mode admin 
tool that is simple and efficient to use. Even if a GUI installer or 
admin tool comes along, no one is arguing that the text mode tools need 
to vanish to make way for it.
