I am certainly not saying that, no, not at all. Perhaps I came off that
way, I'm told I play the devil's advocate[1] role pretty well ;)

Yeah, again, I'm not taking a position against taking it in-house. I just
would rather not see it detract from the community's core competency of
improving couchdb. And it doesnt have to... the community will grow and
with it, the pool of talent and ways to contribute will also grow. Hell,
awhile back, I started in on an "aggregator to trump all aggregators"
portal thinger... based around commentary in one of these ML threads. I
didn't stick with it, but the idea still intrigues me.
