"This is probably the best square wheel there is today" does not make
it a good wheel, even if it's better than all the other square wheels.

If there was only one thing taken from the RICG I'd hope that it was
the observation that it got a *lot* more feedback from general authors
than any of the mailing lists do. It's simply much easier to access
and read than the mailing lists - it's not about the people running
either group, it's about the medium it is in.
