You are much closer to being able to sway that argument than we: you,
after all, are directly associated with the people who can make that
decision. It would behoove you to at least put significant effort into
what everyone here agrees would be the best way to get Opera working
well with Debian and other free software operating systems.

It would also be very helpful if you could keep us appraised of any
response that you have in this area; otherwise a negative result looks
to us exactly the same as no attempt at all.
