    I'd say B, moving towards C. I did business consulting for
    quite a few startups, and to a one, they were unable to understand
    that a souffle needs *all* the ingredients (at the right time
    and temperature) to rise. I had never before seen such a
    profound misunderstanding of process. It was like watching
    a construction crew finish the drywall before running the wiring.
    Truly amazing.
