but another failure of commercial software is that the biz people drive the
development pace so that too many features get added at the cost of
stability and purity of concept.

and so we would hope that open source developers didn't also get on that
track, and spent more time getting a pure, simple and immediately
understandable api/config.

this is very common in web-shops.  crap code because its all about what the
manager sees coming out the other end.

in the long run everybody pays for it:  i have to waste too long fixing a
crap implementation and its more hours for everyone.

tomcat's config problems have wasted thousands and thousands of development
dollars/hours that could have been spent fixing the problem in the first

apologies to tomcat developers, i really don't want to rag on you.  if i
wasn't developing several other systems/projects, i would get further
involved.  i might in the future.
