Hello Monty:

I'm OK with not continuing this on the Speex tech list. In fact, I've 
deliberately responded off list to the various posters. I do think, 
though, that your admonitions to be non political should go to both 
sides ... that Jean-Marc founded Speex doesn't give him license to 
denigrate other efforts. Thomas Leigh asked a perfectly legitimate 
question and Jean-Marc's response reeked with politically based 
sarcasm. The little dirty secret that nobody dares talk about is that 
the open source religion was born out of anti-Microsoft, 
anti-Capitalist attitudes ... let's simply acknowledge the truth.
