We aren't enemies, and they will probably be clients again.  I
could test things down their on my own dime but it would be too
big a dime. I'd be better off buying a board on my own but I'm not
going to.

These are manufacturing test stands for medical equipment that have
been "validated" in their limited environment.  They have identical
spare computers, will install 3.4, and set them up and test the
test stands following a formal step by step procedure.  They don't
need me to help them and they probably won't upgrade for the life
of the current product unless they needed to change production

Unlike many projects, this sort is extremely close-ended.  One of
the things we do during release is to make sure every feature is
specified and has a test, and I happily go through and rip out
those features without that.  That's why it is hard for me to argue
with Poul.
