| Nick thinks it's big news, and I do, too. It's big because it offers
| customers a way to customize hosted applications, rather than running
| them "as is." The myth has been that companies don't want to customize
| software. The reality is that they emphatically do. Salesforce.com's
| traditional customer base (SMEs) did not. Its big Fortune 500
| companies definitely do.
