Yes, all of which is important, and none of which I don't believe can be
achieved in the way I've suggested.

I never argued that there wasn't a relationship - in fact, I explicitly
agreed that we do need more people to be involved! What I said was, that
from a development point of view, getting an easy to use joe-public
interface should be secondary to getting the basic system up and
running. Kinda like not waiting for pgAdmin to be released before
releasing PostgreSQL.
