Which is in itself DIRECTLY about Ardour.  Paul has made a great piece of
software through his compromises, and that is what some of us don't want to
see compromised needlessly.  At this point we have many other avenues to
follow through on to try to find more funding, so let us do those instead of
this, as those might not require such a compromise, and may be even more
likely to provide funding capable of sustaining Paul.
