This article is the stripped down version of an article I submitted for the August 2007 issue of Dr. Dobbs Journal.  I had submitted a full article but they had already selected the one they wanted to publish for their issue.  They liked what I submitted though and decided to publish part of it as a sidebar to the article on globalized distributed development.  This is the first article I ever got published anywhere.  One day, I will publish the full version on this website.
