Whoopee indeed, based on what seems to be happening
out there.  The lesson here is the same as the one
taught by the Web itself, by the C and Java 
languages, by SQL, by the Unix system call interface, 
in fact from virtually every successful world-changing
technology deployment: don't try to solve the whole

Or to put it in Len's terms, minimal victories are just 
fine, because they're the ones you can actually get.
