not to me:
-- power always goes to those that actually write the code
-- as far as I can recall, there has never been a large group of
folks contributing to the core code
so have a company being the primary contributor and decision maker is
no different that what we've always had -- particularly when Travis
pretty much single-handedly re-factored Numeric to give us numpy.
Oh -- one difference -- having a company with more that one coder
means more code!
If continuum does indeed develop a bloated, ugly mess to meet their
client's needs -- none of us have to use it.
