Having the experience of trying to persuade *big* Belgian companies to
use open source frameworks, I can only agree with this. There exist 
companies out there with literally hundreds of developers that can only 
use http on port 80 due to 'security policies'. That's also one of the 
reasons why we shouldn't depend too much on people using cvs and related 
tools for documentation submissions IMHO.
