It might be as you imply, the question is where we want to go.

Maybe, but I think we can increase the number of users by making ocoon 
less complex to use by refactoring and the blocks architecture. And not 
least by doing the polishing and little things that failes to stir 
Stefano's entusiasm.

Another question is if we want to grow the user base. My opinion is that 
we should grow the user base, that means that we get more testing, more 
people who become developers, and larger oportunities to get paid for 
doing fun stuff.
