You've taken what I said and interpreted it completely opposite to  
the meaning. I didn't say adding multiblog support would kill the  
project. I said trying to maintain two branches in parallel  
development, one as single-blog and one as multi-blog, would either  
kill a branch or kill the entire project (parallel development  
meaning any features/bugfixes written for one branch would, if  
applicable, have to be re-written for the other branch as well). The  
other option would be for someone else to start maintaining one of  
the branches and for it to basically become a fork. But that's  
certainly not desirable either.

And see Piers's post for why Gary's original assertion is wrong.
