I assume this is aimed at me :)

Honestly, I am open to anyone selling their own approach - that is the
way that we all learn about new stuff and how this space grows and
develops.  What got my goat was how it was done, but I won't belabor it
(again) here.

Again, I would really enjoy a discussion about JAWA and any other
templating solution here in this forum if others would be tolerant of
the obvious off-topic nature.  Maybe I will do an OOB invitation to Brad
for that if no one minds.

The funny part of the feature/bug thing was that the thread had nothing
to do with it until the end...
