As before, "??".

Maybe this thing I wrote three years ago can help:
"Is 'Open' and 'Shut' really open-and-shut?"

My theme: Using "But it's *proprietary*!" as a reasoning to cut off some 
of your choices may be doing yourself a disservice. Use what works for 
the job... no need to get all religious about it.
