There was a time when I held this opinion. These days I must admit a 
sense of pride when I see PostgreSQL as a member and read news stories 
about SPI helping OpenOffice conduct its voting. I think that is great.

The original SPI concept that services are cheaper when you share them 
between projects is a valid one. All the services that SPI uses like 
lawyers, banks and the postal system are shared. We are just moving up 
one notch in specialization. It seems to me that it would be a shame to 
walk away from the original goal at this point, after so much work.
