ROTFL. I don't know whether such a spoof video is
a good or bad thing, but if we had a real "marketing"
video and code, then I think it wouldn't matter.

Definitely release something, the sooner the better.
I'm trying to distill some frameworks I have into something
releasable too. If everyone works on one approach, we'll
all get there sooner. We need a catalyst like "SoS"
for us to reach critical mass. (I came across the catalyst
effect that RoR has for Ruby, while following some blog links).
