I think the biggest thing that's needed in terms of getting the word out is to 
have something that is recognized as being orders of magnatude better than 
what's out there, even if not perfect, and agree not to talk it down because you 
are working on something that may be better.

If there's ever a case of 'perfect being the enemy of good enough', it's the 
development here.
