It's users like you who make things better for everyone.  Each  
question and request helps pave the way for future users.

Case in point, I'm pretty sure you were the first person to ask about  
getting OpenEJB 3.0 beta 1 and Hibernate working together.  Every  
current and future OpenEJB/Hibernate user owes you thanks in one form  
or another.  No small contribution.

Exactly.  Pretty amazing isn't it?  When we launched OpenEJB off as an  
embeddable EJB container years ago we never dreamed that it would  
cause this kind of a change.  We couldn't be more excited or more proud.

Let's hope so :)  Course I'll expect a beer in return.
