I certainly didn't think you were.  I think Torsten was asking a 
hypothetical question of me.  However, your response above is exactly 
what I was trying to point out. What we think is in the "best interest 
of the project" is colored by our experiences with our current and 
former employers.  While you aren't voting "according to your employer's 
needs" you are certainly considering them as well as your former 
employers when making decisions.  If you didn't then Cocoon would just 
be a toy with no practical value.
