Into the discussion about Marketing, Kat Kuvinka smirked:

> Yes, Sales is the REALLY evil department!

Well, when it comes to a choice between:

- the people who represent to customers and potential customers that we will build things we're not even sure we can build ("Sure we can do that... maybe... but, um, you didn't promise them we'd be able to release it this century, did you?"),


- the people who represent that we already have things that will do stuff we didn't design it for, and we couldn't make it do ("You said we have WHAT!?!?!! Our Crypo-Framistan will do ... WHAT!??!?! You took your cousin Maury's word that 'it's a simple tweak to the code, half an hour, tops'?")...

I dunno. Depends on the day of the week and which way the ill wind is blowin'.
