Stop splitting everything in bands. Both sides are doing QA work -
Maybe what should be measured (if it could, in a world much different
than the one we live in) is whether putting money in speeded up or
sloweed down the release - By this, I mean QA work and overall QA
level. But as I said in an earlier message, that will never be
completely, reliably measurable.
