        I think there is a misunderstanding. Savannah is not a service
provided to you, it is a service made by you ;-) If people living on Savannah
are unhappy with what they have, they are invited to change this state of
things by themselves. They can't count on a third party to do it for them.
They can hope Savannah will evolve into what they need at some point, of
course, by there is no guarantee as to wether it happens in this life or
the next.
