I agree that comments to articles like this are useful for better
directing where efforts (in either code or documentation) can be
improved, but as someone who is only involved in Tahoe in the sense of
it's interesting/seems useful/I'll probably start using it someday,
reading those comments only served to waste 5 minutes of my day, and
quite possibly actually made me dumber. If that was possible. :)
