[BioBrew Users] Biobrew vs Biolinux vs Rocks

Would it be opening up a can of worms to revisit the discussions from 
last August relating biobrew to rocks?  They seem to be going the way 
you wanted with your neurobiomathphygeobrew idea ... a base rock install 
and then various rolls.  Have you given any thought to creating a Rocks 
BioRoll in addition to/instead of biobrew?
Does it make sense for you and Dan to discuss options that biolinux has 
chosen and allow those as options on a FE install?
I'm just asking because I see all three projects as being very valuable 
to the research community and would love it if everyone played together 
in a fashion that allowed us to easily benefit from _all_ of your hard 
work -- instead of just some of it as might be the case if we don't have 
the expertise/time to sort and merge ourselves.

Of course I can completely understand that if building a whole distro is 
more interesting to you than just a chunk I would rather there were too 
many choices than too few.

Oh yeah, and thanks to Dan and Glen
