I think we could be there... just needs a wee bit more love.  I don't  
see any of the bugs in AE as blockers.

The biggest issue for me was I hated the 1+ hour sync time from cwiki  
change to live content... that really pissed me off and I ended up  
dropping at the time.

Eh... yes and no... click on the user/dev list links in the top-nav,  
or the issue tracker.  Or click on any link that takes you to cwiki.   
Aside from the hideous mbox junk and jira, the only thing that is  
consistent is *part* of the page header (the blue bar with the G logo).

I don't consider this really consistent.
