Xiphophorus wasn't the company in question :)

We were getting funded by iCast, and entertainment company.  Whatever
business model they had, didn't work, and it folded, thus drying up a
source of funding for several developers.

Our business didn't fail, our benefactors did.

We *hoped* it wouldn't happen this way.  It did.  Now we continue to
plod on as normal and look for new sources of funding.

Long live Vorbis!
