You can't have multiple primary audiences. ;-) A priority list is
numbered 1, 2, 3, not 1, 1, 1. The ranking is used when there are
inherent conflicts between groups and you can't find a way to resolve

Some developers will claim they should be priority #1. IMHO those
people are effectively advocating that we remain niche software, and
let Microsoft win.

Of course they should be on the radar; when we can make everyone happy
we will.
