This is not true. We've got a /lot/ of time and ressources. We just
choose to use them differently. I'm not being pedantic, I honestly
believe this difference is essential. It may be perfectly reasonable for
us to /decide/ that we don't want to shift our priorities to accomodate
this new task, but we /do/ have the power to make that decision. Saying
that we don't have the ressources skews the discussion by making us seem
helplessly determined when we're really not.
