The Buddhists have a saying: "If you meet the Buddha along the road,
kill him." It is their way of noting that an attachment to Buddha
and his path (although useful at first) is still an attachment and
that it will still prevent one from achieving enlightenment.
XP "turns the knobs to 10", but they're still the same knobs.
Progress will be made when we remove the producer/consumer
dichotomy. Deconstruct it yourself, Brian, and envision the world
without this barrier. Forget the knobs and smash the amp. If you
meet XP along the road, kill it.
