Buying out a company wouldn't affect dedicated people; they'd find a job
somewhere else and keep right at it.  Companies have disappeared on us
before (Great Bridge, Pervasive) and the project is still here.

I think one significant difference between us and MySQL is that that
project probably *could* be killed by acquiring and shutting down one
company.
