Lightspark doesn't have a clear end goal besides "100% compatibility
with Adobe", which isn't clear, and very open-ended.

How much do we want to ask for? $6,000? What are we going to do with
the funds? That pays a full-time programmer for one week.

What is our promotional material? Are we going to give a fancy motion
graphics video that shows off what Lightspark can do, and what it's
designed to do?

I do not want Lightspark to become the next OnYun. [0]
