Yeah, I guess I like Jacopo's point that it would be better to quite  
me than speak for me. In this I don't believe I even said/wrote  
anything like that.

Having a large OOTB end-user community would certainly benefit the  
project, in really major ways too. The problem is that the current  
contributing community does not have sufficient resources to create  
and maintain what would be needed to satisfy this sort of user.  
Hopefully that will change in the future. In the mean time, the  
project is self-sustaining and growing based on use by non-OOTB users  
and contributors (or those that are OOTB users, but just extremely  
patient... ;) ).
