If that's your final offer, there's not much point in arguing this.
I'll keep working toward XML systems which include humans, and maybe
someday I'll have something decent to show.
Right now I'm simply depressed that most developers refuse to take note
of the possibility that XML opens up _different_ opportunities from what
they're used to, and continue to march down the same data processing
paths they've followed blindly for the last thirty years.
Will they make money at it? Sure. Are they missing interesting
possibilities? I think definitely.
