It's not that weird for us, who spend all our free time in something as
beautiful as opensource, to ask for a little fun like giving our weird
opinions on random subjects once in a while? This one-minute-of-fame
feeling is one of the many things that makes all this so much fun.

Don't get too rigid on this, guys. It *should* be fun. :). Maybe Dennis'
stuff isn't that good an idea, not up to me to device, but I generally
like Iain's release announcements, and I wouldn't mind seeing some more
random nonense here and there. It's cool.
