Looks like we're in agreement once again, Josh. The beauty as things have evolved is that there's emerged more and less "in" components to be involved with, so something for everyone. It's my personal opinion that it's the the persistence of both approaches, in the context of lateral authority, that will allow for complementary as opposed to conflictive purposes and thus overall growth. And it could conceivably increase the chances that the project survives in the event that fickle fortune frowns upon it's central purpose.
