Terry, you may have private info from Clayton that I don't have, but my
understanding from conversations with him is that he never had any
intention of remaining with the Apache OOo project beyond helping a bit
with the handover process. In fact, I'm fairly sure he said this in a
note to this list some weeks ago, but I haven't the energy to try to
track it down in the archives.
