I think I agree more with you today than yesterday.
I was pooh-poohing the idea that people would want to standardize on GM,
but a professor just emailed me asking how he could convince his IT
department to adopt a pro-user-script policy, and install a <div> into
their sites as a permanent hook for his GM scripts.
I guess because GM is here today, to some, it looks like the prototype
for the new era.
That seems crazy to me. On the other hand, GM is the only thing out
there that works today -- any other dream of a user-manipulable web
seems pretty far off. So, never say never.
