No, I think it's for everyone to make their own decision, which is why
I didn't post against any call to answer.

Personally, I don't feel comfortable asking librarians to make that
effort for so little return as far as I can see.  It's little use for
marketing Koha because the Koha data is inaccurate.  The KohaUsers
list is more interesting.

As suggested late in Marshall Breeding's post, such whistle-blowing
surveys are more attractive for systems with closed single-company
communities.  Playing the game the proprietary ILS company way is more
like shooting ourselves in the foot, don't you think?
