I notice more an more talk about integration of liquid-dsp into
gnuradio and apparently there is already a gr-liquiddsp out of tree
module on github.

I have known of liquid-dsp for quite some time now. It is my first
choice when I need SDR in pure C and I have nothing but the utmost
respect for the documentation it comes with.

I am however wondering what is the rationale behind integrating
liquid-dsp into gnuradio. From what I can see, most if not all
functionality in liquid-dsp is already available in gnuradio. Having
duplicated functionality is almost always wrong and hardly contributes
to clarity.

I am probably missing something or just misunderstand the situation,
so please enlighten me :)

Thanks for the information.
