Rather harsh statement, don't you think, considering people make money 
from doing avalon-based development? You consider them an anomaly?

I think you would do everyone a pleasure if you could differentiate a 
little between the "original vision" for avalon and what it actually 
(regardless of "new vision"s). IOW replace all the current and future 
tense in these messages with past tense and it sounds a lot less harsh.

Regardless, what conclusions do you draw from your "personal view of 
Avalon"? Just abandon it all? That seems a bit incompatible with your 
suggestion to incubate merlin earlier on. And highly inefficient from a 
socio-economic viewpoint ;)

I'd finally like to point out that "efficient and socio-economically 
viable" is basicaly a non-goal of the ASF. Gump, for example, is not 
particularly good at doing "efficient and socio-economically viable" 
things, but is a thriving project nonetheless :-D
