You're absolutely correct, however the only thing Al contributes (for the 
purposes of this particular discussion) are complaints about how other 
people are doing it wrong.  He complains about "siloed" projects, but the 
silos are of his own construction.  There's two fully open source projects 
that do flux-level disk imaging, but he's apparently not interested in 
helping either one because of how they choose to interact with their user 
base.  Frankly, as far as I'm concerned, he needs to cut loose his 
belt-onions and quit shouting at clouds.
