Got to cut you off there... open source projects don't *have* to do
anything the project's community doesn't elect to do, they don't even have
to continue existing. If making bizarre urgent demands of technology is
how government contracting has conditioned you to cope with problems, there
are plenty of commercial database alternatives who'd no doubt appreciate
your dollars.

Here's where you can help - earlier in the thread I alluded to just one of
many possible ways that QA could be improved to alleviate cross-browser
woes, but it doesn't automagically happen. If you want to see improvements,
stop waxing pathetic about /gub'ment this/ and /draconian IT that/... and
instead resolve to contribute.
