  And of course I wasn't implying that you think like that!  Yes, I
follow these emails on devel@ and other lists and there is a need for
content making in general.

  And, I think it should be possible to make such contents on XO.
Otherwise, the work flow is like some people make them in Flash/Flex,
etc. and have them consumed by others with XO.  This is another point
it seems to be missing to me in the discussion.
