I like Lance's point here..    We need to keep in mind that, although
the current organizational model is not perfect, that we did not get
here by chance and luck.  Gentoo is working, and it's working well
enough to find itself in production everywhere.  We need to keep that in
mind before making radical organizational changes.    However, I'm for
any change that moves us forward, versus the rash of recent
unprofessional fiascos and livecd slips that seem to move us backward..
