I don't agree here - ToolBuilder is a framework for the tools, which
is not 'an application'. A Tools team would need to maintain the
browsers, debugger, workspace, ... - which in my eyes are a series of
applications, and modulo a couple of tools that are 'external' (MC,
MCC come to mind), it's the vast majority of the code base that uses
and probably will use the framework.

Ok, care is in order, because I know exactly what you mean here, seen
it too often :-). But I wouldn't reject the idea out of hand. Anyway,
I think it's ultimately for Brian and the team to decide, I was just
suggesting it.
