My philosophy on this issue is that a good tool in the hands of a bad mind is worth 
less then a bad tool in the hands of a good mind. At the same time a larger user base 
of MetaCard is beneficial to almost everybody involved with the product. 
The worst thing that can happen to a MC developer is to see possible clients shying 
away from their product because they never heard of MetaCard. Not to mention my recent 
experience with a web hosting company trying to use MC for cgi.
