+42 on the decoupling (something I've been arguing for for years, so 
that can't come as a surprise). It will help us two-fold: First, it will 
make the system simpler, and thus easier to track errors in. Second, it 
will open it up for more people to be able to help out with fixing 
issues in it.

And when we do that, not using the expertise offered by OmniTI would be 
a big mistake. As long as they way it'd be done is for them to help us 
out with how to configure it within the parameters that our 
infrastructure works on now, and not just deliver a "dropin 
off-the-shelf solution" that we should be using. But with my 
understanding of how OmniTI works, I don't see that as being a problem.
