Um... that seems like false logic. If we package it as a Framework,
*then* applications can start to use it.

If we never package it as a Framework, then applications will *never*
be able to use it (easily).

Some time sunk into creating a Framework, in return for saving a lot
of downstream users the time to use stuff right from our build? That
seems like a win to me.

"provided by CollabNet" ... um... so? What about binaries provided by others?

Hmm? Was Jeremy suggesting an Umbrella? It sounded like just one
Framework Kinda unclear here, but I don't see how providing more
options to downstream users can be a Bad Thing.
