That's nonsense.  Since when has adding multiblog support to a  
blogging engine killed the project?  You're scare-mongering and that  
doesn't help.

I still say I don't like the idea of multiblog support being wedged  
into the main trunk.  If it's going to be done, it needs to be done  
right.  Textpattern still doesn't provide full multiblog support,  
Wordpress has an entirely different project (Wordpress MU) and  
Moveable Type worked on it in the background until it was ready.   
Learn a lesson there.  Stamp on all the outstanding bugs.  Get  
another good stable release out of the door and then look at  
multiblog support.  One minute there's talk about the run up to 4.0  
then the next multiblog support is jammed into trunk.


But that's just my opinion ;)
