Along the same lines, I am a volunteer and patches are accepted even 
more happily than bug reports.  It's disheartening to see someone's 
volunteer work reduced to "Bah, it doesn't escape NULLs, so it sucks so 
much that I'll just go write my own."  It would seem to me that 
contributing your skill to fixing issues with existing software would be 
a better thing than having to invent yet another database system.
