Thanks to Lars for an excellent question and thanks for these clear
answers. I have stripped a lot of text which softens and explains
your positions in more detail, but my snippage is fair, I hope.
Contrary to what Lars says, I think there is a clear difference
between these two approaches. ISTM that Lucas is much more "hands-on"
and (for example) and takes much more of a close interest in the
processes adopted by teams, than Neil would do.
Do you both think that's a fair characterisation ?
