[Greasemonkey] Greasemonkey: an Historical Perspective

Thanks, Jeremy. I would have been very annoyed if you had agreed with me! ;)

Seriously, I'm keen to become an active member of the GM community because I
do believe that something important is happening here. I've rarely been so
ambivalent about something. On the one hand, I've never felt so empowered as
a programmer. On the other hand, I want to make sure that we don't see this
as the be-all and end-all because all the things that are cool about GM
would be *so much cooler* if there were more structured content around to
consume. I'm thinking very hard about how we can accelerate this process now
that we have GM, so hopefully I'll have more to say about this soon.

Oh, and please try to work some more poultry-related aphorisms into your
reponse! :-)
