I don't care much about the VAX. What I care about is next year's
system that requires flexibility in ways that having the VAX work
taught us to accomodate. As it stands, we work on virtually everything 
that can be thrown about us -- and these days, building a new port is
becoming a cookie cutter operation, with massive code sharing.

In my opinion, that's real quality.
