That's my view as well. And I think it is important to remember that  
many things usually called "art" are actually not being released  
until well in the eye of the beholder. So you, as being the creator,  
is one of the individuals least expected to understand the true  
artistic values of your work, at least not right away. So, in that  
sense I guess I have a rather different view compared to Kevin's.
