While the remarks are in jest (yours and mine), it bugs me that people 
seem to consider Rodney Hide to be an incompatible fit in terms of 
putting our views to parliament?  Why is that?  Perhaps we should start 
a politics thread, but it could get messy...

Anyway, in summary - he's a liberal, so he cares about personal freedom, 
and he is passionate about Open Source.  How can that require loose 
coupling? :)
