	Please, do not get angry. I can see and feel good-will from everyone
involved in this convergence. I think everyone should try to make clean
explanations and avoid the "who's wrong" game.

	For example I don't think pointing out GnuCash is a "failure" because
it doesn't have a released gtk2 interface does any good. We all know
that GnuCash is late with that task, but I think that developers are
doing their best and past decisions have been quite good for users
(users want features, and for "most" of them a tech/platform change is
not so important; they want help with their accounting). Instead of
saying "it's a failure" just suggest how you think we could have a gtk2
interface ASAP; this would be more positive, wouldn't it? :)
