I'll assert that there is a subset of participants on this list, taking 
part in this discussion and whom have added their names to the proposed 
committers list who feel strongly that the proposed project's efforts 
should include a strong end-user focus.  I'm willing to believe that there 
is also a subset that thinks otherwise. If these difference can be 
resolved, that would be best.  But if not, I'll suggest that this is a 
fundamental difference of vision which probably cannot be reconciled 
within a single proposal.
