	AAAAAaaaaaarrrrggghhh!  :)

	Seriously, though, if some real collaboration with Be does take
place then the scope of this project will expand far beyond Gnome.  The
market is ready (or rather, in need of) a cross-platform,
pluggable-architecture-based open media API.  We should get in touch with
Loki, Apple, SGI, the KDE folks (and others?) and think about starting a
consortium for an open media standard.  (Something that's neither
Quicktime nor DirectX!)

	Of course, Gnome would have the "reference implementation" :)
