You go to [flame] wars with the Randall you have, not the Randal you  
want.  :)

There's been much wailing and gnashing of teeth about this.  Some  
people[1] are IMHO going off half-cocked, piling speculation on top  
of speculation.  I've yet to see one participating developer complain  
about his share.

Previous such experiments have ended with some developers less than  
happy.  This is bleeding-edge capitalism and its worst and best:   
everyone's making money; some are making more than others; some (and  
to date, only) external observers think it's unfair.

If MacHeist really was deceptive then the case is clear; I've not  
seen those allegations.
