Understood. I have also invested a lot of time in cocoon (full time
for two years). I understand how you feel. Unfortunately, my aim was
to get these ideas out there, and let people think about them. It
would seem I didn't present them in a very palatable way.

My initial reaction to your e-mail was one of disappointment and
anger. I didn't spend weeks on this e-mail in an attempt to alienate
myself from you guys, and that's what it feels like I've done.

Contrary to what it would appear is the belief, I wrote the e-mail in
an effort to /help/ the Cocoon project. I knew I couldn't just get in
there and deliver all the changes myself, so I thought it was best to
get them out on paper ASAP, and get other people excited and

Sorry it didn't work out that way.
