You made your INTENTION completely clear, and I applaud the intention.
My point is about the execution, not the intention. If something
creeps in and starts to exist for a period of time then it gains
traction and it's harder to get out later. I'm jsut suggesting that if
users (not developers) do testing on more systems that this would be
good. (possibly)

Cool. Again, I get the intention, and if you're cool with you guys
looking after this aspect of things then I don't need to do any of

If you find something that you need a non-code-monkey to do let me
know. Until I get a job I certainly have more time.
