Naah - it was just a rhetorical question. ;-)

I agree with you on Lenya's situation. See my remark on functional vs 
technological projects. I guess the same would happen if we start 
incubating a PetShop, WikiEngine, EAI tool and whatnot. The problem is 
that functional use-cases and business customer requirements are hard to 
fit into a design that appeals to framework and tools geeks, since they 
are bound to have a different view on the design of such apps, partly 
due to the NIH-syndrome, but also because business customer-facing 
design decisions are largely arbitrary.
