well, you tell me how else the following goals are to be met, and i
will consider them:
a) protection from people fucking up the EOMA initiative by being
either plain fucking incompetent or DELIBERATELY releasing
electrically incompatible products that cause short-circuits,
potentially resulting in fires and death, let alone destroying both
their own market as well as ours by causing people to be too afraid to
buy products that might not work or worse might even kill them.
b) funding for future products.
