It sounds like there are going to be a lot of these sold, especially for XML, 
if they come to pass.  That kind of access would certainly settle most of my 
needs, but I wouldn't count on it to pacify those with 'exquisitely high 
standards' who want to participate more actively.

Still, it's a great start!

(Does O'Reilly get a discount? They're already a member, though I think it's 
their software side.)
