In general (not to target you directly in any way) there is not really
an excuse for harshness in email. You have time to think and write
polite and respectful words. If you don't want to sound harsh, don't
be harsh.

Drupal is open source. Anyone is free to use it for what they wish as
long as they share their derivative work. He is sharing his. It may
not be useful for you but it might be for someone. Among other things
Drupal takes PHPTemplate and builds on top of it for theming. What Bob
is doing is not all that different.

While it is not about Drupal development itself, it is about using
Drupal's code base which might be relevant to any Drupal developer
even if only to say that he tried something that he thought was
possible and is making it work. You never know what may come if it (or
anything on or around Drupal). It is nice to at least hear of these
things so we are aware of them, IMHO.

Thanks for sharing Bob.
