    Therein lies a problem in attitude: encoding of scripts, and doing it well,
    takes an on-going commitment and presence from people who have expertise on
    the scripts in question. It does not happen if an expert sticks her/his
    head in the door momentarily, makes a few comments and then disappears.

    If that's the case, see above.
