It's clear to me that if you regard interoperability as a "theoretical
construct" that needs to have quotation marks put around it, we have
no further basis for discussion.  Mike, perhaps you should make it
clear that this is a personal opinion, not Software AG's take?  I'd
have trouble doing business with any vendor that didn't see the
business case for interoperability of their tools and my data.  

The comment above is astounding. -Tim
