	This is all true; however - it seems totally clear to me, that unless
we have a shared vision of where we want the infrastructure to go, and a
shared set of requirements - we're going to end up with something that
instead of slowly increasingly in coherents wastefully continues as a
set of disparate, floating, badly coupled pieces.

	So; there is clearly a role for strategy, if not actually working on
infrastructure ;-)
