Doug,

Good question.

Last year, IBM announced that it would contribute Symphony code to the AOO
project. I'll defer to the business types to provide the full details.

I can speak to the AOO user experience opportunties. When this code
contribution is available, there could be an opportunity to migrate or
merge any aspects of the user experience that compliment the existing AOO
offering and will enhance the AOO user experience. Hey, choice is good ;)

Such enhancements, similar to any proposed AOO design enhancements, must be
focused on realizing our user's core use cases.

Finally, all enhancements are subject to AOO community approval.

Regards,
Kevin

AOO User Experience Design
