Hi Richard,

	the problem is that the prhase is a definition, not a slogan. To
illustrate my point imagine the guys of scriptaculous deciding their slogan
will be "The JavaScript Framework for dynamic visual effects and user
interface elements built on Prototype" instead of "it's about user
interface, baby!"

	A slogan has a very accurate mission to archieve: it defines but
informally, mostly emotionally. Formalism is a consequence (that we wish to
happen) of acceptance of that informal approach suggested by the slogan.

	We have a plenty load of formal support to give but the informal one
is giving us some work now :P

	all the best,

Sebastian Sastre
