:)  Agreed.  The thing I'm concerned about is that we're moving into a more
business oriented stage for Jabber (at least that was my perception for why
we needed the JSF).  And when you start involving business, you tend to have
a lot of people that really play the rules...for better or worse.  Sort of
like the differences between running meetings between guys at the pub over
beers, and holding meetings under Roberts Rules of Order.  I'm thinking that
JSF is more on the RRO side of things so its important for us to start
getting the proper "rules of order" in place...as painful as that seems at
first.
