What customers??  This is open source.  Developers do not need, if they do not 
want to, to take any notice of anyone but themselves.  They do not need 
customers.  This is the basic misconception.  Developers do not need us, the 
users.  We need them.  This is NOT a business.  It will go "out of business" 
(having not been one in the first place) not if it loses all its users (who 
are NOT customers) but if it loses all its developers.
