That's less exciting to talk about than "active bad faith" but I suspect - and I don't know because this is a big place - that Michael's more prosaic formulation is the most accurate.
Yesterday I wandered into the head of MapGuide's office and he himself was making some code changes to submit out to the tree, adding work to the Fusion stuff that DM previously built.
Again, I don't know what one person in one of our many sales offices around the world are doing with their local quarterly budgets but here at headquarters the commitment remains.

Without having any further background than the quote below, Autodesk has enough positive karma banked that I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt this time -- sometimes resource and time and business constraints are such that you have to make difficult decisions that negatively effect one constiuency in order to positively effect another.
