The only trouble is that if we are side-tracked into endless
discussions of interesting red herrings, the real goal -- which is open
access to the refereed research literature -- remains unreached, indeed
blocked by stacks and stacks of interesting red herrings!

I think we should -- if for no other reason than to avoid making us
look too silly to the future historians of all this -- cut to the
quick. We have already had over a decade of interesting inaction.
