  - I would prefer to see it produced with at least one or two
	open-source components in the chain (seems that all the
	process steps are done on proprietry software - and why
	not? Most Unices are proprietry...)
  - what to do about patches/upgrades (ie. can I extend it with
	next years additions to the history? And the year after?
	Will it look dated and crap in 5 years?)

Maybe we can make up a similar diagram, possibly of the history
of Linux distributions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Gldt.svg
and put that up somewhere...
