Yes. You also made this point earlier in the thread, but it got snipped (I'll repeat it here:)

And that is one of the main reasons why, in big business, an executive or team of executives from outside the organisation (often from overseas) might be installed by a board to do a particular job (e.g. a reorganisation). This is not always because the vision or ability is lacking in-house, it is because no-one in-house wants the job (makes to many enemies to say "gentoo-macos sucks"), or because noone in-house will be given sufficient respect ("he is just one of us, and we don't see a problem") or because noone in-house can be trusted to do it (doesn't really apply here, since nepotism and corruption aren't the issue). -f -- gentoo-osx@g.o mailing list
