Danl, please don't cast discussion as "pro-" some tool, or the implied
"anti-" some tool.
Developers (and/or their employers) choose the tools they find most
suitable for their own use. They aren't idiots (at least the developers;
sometimes you wonder about the employers). They know their own needs. We
don't know their needs as well as they do.
Be happy there are diverse tools available. It doesn't help to get upset
if someone chooses different tools than you might choose. At Boost we try
to work with them all to the extent volunteers are willing to contribute.
