But as a user I could care less!  The authors may care, but I don't
care if Torqued "obsoletes" Gorgon, because in using Torqued I'm
DTRT'ing even though I don't know it.

What I care about is when I'm using Gorgon, and there's something
"better" (or worse, "correct") to use in my application.

It might be a good idea to have a just-like-Amazon
