    Yow. These guys sure do seem to have some things to say that I agree
    with totally (like the need for interactive, shared,
    structured-data-centric toolkits) and they sure are working hard, but
    mygawd, is there anyone in this crew who understands something about
    simplicity? It seems they all took courses on "design by obfuscation"

    If anyone finds any particular nuggets of clear, succinct thought in there,
    please let me know, cause I want to understand but don't have the time for
    all of the conceptual combinatorics that these guys seem fond of.
