For me, that's sound *realistic* and *practical* statements. What's
important IMO is :
1. To have open formats for all the documents & sources so that
anyone can use open source and free tools and don't face some huge
licence fees that might be a showstopper in one's project.
2. The developpers shall be able to use the tools of their choice
because : 1) they have them, 2) they are trainned for them. In my
understanding, this what is under Nikolaus' "If we rule out to work
with any non-free tool, we can't even start". Efficiency is a main
3. Let's have it work !
My two cents.....
