I think that's a great idea.

Obviously there are a number of ways to tackle this problem and we will
continue to work on holding a clear and informed debate over the coming
weeks. Thanks to everyone who has made suggestions.

For the moment we have updated the comparison at
http://www.runrev.com/pdf/revTalk-Other-Comparison.pdf to better articulate
the point that was intended. We will post a similar discussion and add some
JavaScript examples to the PHP comparison shortly.

We will continue to work on finding good ways to realistically and clearly
make the case for revTalk. It is very good news that there is now a debate
going on.

Kind regards,

Kevin
