I don't recall saying there could not. What I am saying is that, were one to
come here now, it would rapidly become the de facto standard simply by
virtue of being here at the ASF. And once there is a de facto standard, many
people won't even bother to look elsewhere, or bother to evaluate its merits
or lack of them, because they've already got license, so to speak, to use
ASF software.

In fact, if we have to have Zimbra here, I would be right with you in hoping
something better turns up sooner rather than later. ;-)
