I would tend to agree with Doug.  If Simple End User Linux hosts this then
the program must be "simple" to use and make money with right?  What?  I
just lost $50K in junk bonds?  Well obviously it's wasn't so simple and
that's false advertising.

Furthermore, while I think this is worthwhile project, I don't see how it
fits within the goals of SEUL as I know them.
