And the FOSS "get off my f-ing lawn" stereotype lives on.  What Nick
commented was not unreasonable, nor were his suggestions for an
eventual GUI driven JAMU replacement out of line.  He was commenting
on how an alternative product does things, and when corrected that
JAMU was a stopgap measure without a UI he responded gracefully.

Is there really a need to drive people away like this?
