I'll be polite and assume you must have posted this to the wrong list
thread, by mistake.  Because the alternative is to assume that you're 
labelling starting assumptions you don't happen to share as "dogma",
which would be both brainless and insulting, and is the sort of crap I
expect of OS-advocacy types.[1]

I fed this through a semantic-analysis routine.  Oddly, it came out

[1] I don't do OS-advocacy, for reasons inherent in open-source
licensing.  If for some reason this is an unfamiliar concept, please
