that's still too narrow-minded. who would want two high-level systems
that do exactly the same, just with different hardware (yes, the cpu is
hardware, too)?
concentrating on just one usage (auth) isn't wise, either. it's just a
matter of time when things overlap.
just face it, it's one big complex that needs a coherent solution. if
it was done right, qca is this solution. building anything around it
would be pretty pointless. and tt should once embrace something, not clone
it (and reach the same feature level in about three years). they can buy
it out (including justin :) if they can sleep better then. :)=

Hi! I'm a .signature virus! Copy me into your ~/.signature, please!
Chaos, panic, and disorder - my work here is done.
