Yes, good idea. But such an undertaking needs some 3-10M$ (or EUR) for  
nothing but marketing (read: not one new line of code needs to be written,  
except for producing marketing material=multimedia authoring). This is  
what new economy dictates. Not that I think that it is impossible, you  
know. Does anybody in this list happen to know U.S. investors or perhaps  
business angles?
