Subject: Why don't you use batteries?
It seems like batteries' adoption isn't quite as thorough as expected.
We in the batteries devel team would love to know why you don't use
batteries.  Here's some of our guesses:

1) I *do* use batteries
2) It's not 1.0 yet, I'll try it then
3) It makes my executables too big
4) It's too hard to install (dependencies, godi failures)
5) It's difficult to compile against
6) It doesn't work on my platform
7) It uses camlp4
8) Other (please explain)

Respond in public if appropriate, respond directly to me if you want.
Now's a good time to think about where batteries is going and how it's
getting there.
