I agree, I was just pointing out that it needs to be dealt with  
before any changes happen.

I <3 your analogies ;)

Again, agreed! I'm not saying we don't need a leader in place, I'm  
saying we don't need another leader in name only...IMHO the ideal  
situation is a current Gentoo dev-team leader who would be interested  
in migrating to OS X.

Its not *all* about perception... lots of PR,hype, and empty titles  
without alot of code to back it up is one of the things that got us  
in trouble in the first place.
