Or a business owner.  I want more productivity because when I write my
games, it's *my* money I'm losing.  Also as a consultant I think better
tools is a way to manage project risk.  You've got so many other ways for a
client to waste your time, to put you behind schedule, you'd like to have
your tools not be an additional way for the project to blow up in your face.
