    I think you misunderstand; it's not always the _software_ which needs
    looking after.

    How much time do you spend supporting BitKeeper users? Quite a lot, I
    suspect. I wouldn't argue that fact makes it 'crappy' software.

    Neither am I arguing that you, personally, should be trying to make a
    living by support alone -- I'm merely observing a trend.
