Once again, sorry to dash cold water on expectations (though with the 
mercury rising cold water isn't such a bad thing!), but we /are/ bound 
by verbal NDAs to the client.  Whatever is generic (and doesn't take too 
much effort to put into publishable form) can be shared.  Whatever is 
specific to the client, or reveals aspects of his operations or 
strategy, is absolutely confidential... I wouldn't want to breach 
anyone's trust, and I'm sure you wouldn't want me to do that either.

I apologise for us coming off as information hoarders (though I do 
believe that whatever we've done and are doing is aligned with the 
spirit and intent of freedom in software); on the other hand, when we 
agreed to do the project we made a commitment to the client, and that is 
not a commitment that we can retrospectively withdraw from.  The only 
alternative was to not make the commitment and not do the project, but 
WTH, if we hadn't done the project this discussion wouldn't have arisen 

Thanks for all the congratulations, folks!  After the money <g> they 
make life in the FOSS world worth living :)
