Incubator has had to hit the ground running, as it were. I think it's
done an adequate job, but Yes, you've hit the nail on the head.
On one hand, people want Incubator to be a simple rubber stamp, which
is unacceptable IMO. Yet, on the other hand you have people who
gripe and complain whenever anyone from Incubator makes suggestions
("All talk, no action", etc... blah blah blah). It's a tough line
to walk.
