	Hmmn: in what sense?

	If I **weren't** Dogbert, and worked for Microsoft,
	I'd be tempted to try releasing selected bits of
	specification and sources to the public domain, in
	order to encourage developers (us!) to use MS protocols
	and services.

[ This is based an a mildly brilliant analysis of Corel's
  jumping onto the open source bandwagon: Edsel Adap proposed
  that it's the modern equivalent of convincing a standards
  body to do it ``your way'']
