I find the above statement to be a very interesting advertisement approach
for a project that addresses requirements that were never discussed on
this list, and which itself was never discussed much. In fact, this statement
sounds like you have made some secret arrangements (*), or even that you had
some revelation from supernatural powers -- which is probably not what you
was going to communicate.

I think Eric statement is much more balanced.

(*) In fact, ryppl gave an impression of some secret arrangements from the
very start.
