Yes, I think people underestimate just how much work integration can
be. Especially if you're stuck in the situation of having to connect
to other proprietary systems. 

People on this mailing list may not be aware of this, but Internode do
have some cluey open source people working for them and I doubt its a
decision they would have made lightly. They have for a long time been
very open source friendly (eg. never had to lie to them about what OS
you are running when wanting support)
