There is really no tone, it more coming from the fact that there is a  
conversation about solving a problem, he doesn't want to be involved  
in solving that problem from the perspective of what people can do  
that are involved with the Apache Flex project.

That survey existed 10 months ago and nothing has changed, we only  
have Alex basically saying no way, no how 10 months later.

Sabatian, I did catch one of your comments regarding our "design view"  
project and you basically said with a couple people involved it's  
impossible and that is why you are continuing the push to get  
FlashCatalyst in CS7 or whatever version you said.

The way I see it is there are major circuits and cross talk happening  
and it's diluting the substance of trying to solve a problem.
