Still, a couple decades seems way too optimistic. I've seen this thing
grow from 1982 to this day, more or less, and there's been not that much
development. And every time a new fragment is proposed, controversy
arises about the "true master plan" of Gaudi (from which no real plans
remain for the rest of the cathedral) and words like "traitor" and
"horror" and "modern" (derisive :) are heard.

This is how a real cathedral is built to last the ages; the product of
many different groups collaborating, arguing, and cooperating with each
other.  It truly embodies the spirit of the community that built it.  No
matter what ones religion or lack thereof, a great cathedral in ones
town is something to be proud of.

Oh, and it's not abnormal for a cathedral to take 200 years to finish.
Being built by community members is also part of the tradition. You can
have your open source bazaar; I'll take a free software cathedral
any day. :-)



It's not true unless it makes you laugh, but you don't understand it until it makes you weep.
