I know that the OpenAFS people can't do anything about this ... but
we've tried that, and I get the sense that the comments never make it
upstream. It's also not clear who our sales rep _is_ ... I know it's
some guy in Apple Federal, but I keep getting different names every
time I ask. I know we complain, but the complaints never seem to make
it to the people that matter (part of the problem: I have no way of
checking that they _do_ make it). When I do manage to talk to someone
in sales, I get a sort of noncommittal answer that always sound like
a blow-off to me, and I just _know_ that they are ignoring me.
