I wasn't attempting to lock us in to anything, I suggested MT because I'm
used to it, Madhu mentioned TypePad because it's the commercialised hosted
version of MT which eschews commercially hosted usage of MT, as Six Apart
are in the business of making money, and DavidU mentioned b2 because it
doesn't have the commercial restrictions MT has.

Was just a logical conversation following product restrictions, not an
effort to lock us into a vendor solution just yet :)
