Well, I'd probably say. The respect of others both in and out of the
open source community.

Secondarily I'd say that we lose a bit of the corporate ready
appearance that some are working towards (which I don't oppose).

Third, we lose the respect of each other in the project. Seriously,
its not something to be thought of lightly. If a project you announce
fails, people will remember oh Simon started so and so, and it failed
utterly.

/me considers these to be serious replies ^.^;; <--the face however
isn't *wink*
