I do not diminish the efforts of open source contributors. I applaud them.

My point was that, as a Smalltalk advocate, I worked on average 8 hours a
day, every day of the year, for nearly 4 years. That is a tremendous burn
rate, and I can tell you I am totally exhausted.

Imagine if I had a *real*, full-time job. This effort would've literally
killed me. And this is exactly why no one else can do the job.

I applaud your commitment, but there are many people giving free time to
(although more technical oriented than pure advocacy)
