Haha, I knew someone would try to do that :-)

The point isn't so much the (im)perfection of the comparison, but ... actually I think that's the essence of Rawld's initial question: how do we interpret the analogy?

Providing tools that make it easier, quicker and more stable versions of cars is what I think Dojo is about.
