So, again, despite the unfortunate timing and how this always flares up when
we have an example to latch on to, my concern is not exclusive to Novell,
XGL, new panel applets, or any of the current examples of this in action. It
is a problem that we all share. It is cultural more than anything else - and
I have been *totally* complicit in propagating it. So don't read my email as
some kind of anti-Novell rant. We're all in this together.
