What incentive do you want us to give? We don't have any. And if
someone does it, we will find a place for it.

I think you want us to look more like a MySQL AB or Oracle company where
things are more bundled and blessed. It isn't going to happen with us
because we aren't a company, don't make money, and don't control anyone.
