Man, oh man. Can you *please* ease up on your Caps Lock key? Sheesh. It
makes your emails look like they're shouting at me. Not to mention,
simply much harder to read.

Regarding the Hyperspace product: is it open source? If not, then the
issue is moot. People are looking for an open source product here.
Looking at the page about Hyperspace, it sure doesn't look to be open
source. Also, it is written as a client-side plugin. One of the issues
here is to work with unmodified, popular browsers that a typical user
has (not something that requires clients to take specific action to plug
stuff in).
