	Do you acknowledge that a number of people have a different
opinion?  If so, do you think their opinions count?  That is, will you be
happy if everyone on the jBoss board believes that jBoss can be legally
integrated with Tomcat, or will you be happy if everyone in the world
believes that jBoss can be legally integrated with Tomcat?
	In my case, it is not a case of what I believe, but what my
company's clients believe, and unfortunately they do not see eye to eye
with the jBoss board.  Does that matter to you?  It matters to me, because
it matters to the people who decide what I will be paid to work on.  :)
	I think we should do whatever we can to make jBoss universally
acceptable.  Because I want everyone in the universe to be able to choose
to use it, on the basis of its features not on the basis of its license.
