Dear Graham,

a couple of months ago you send me some very constructive comments  
about web2py. In particular you suggested that we replaced all  
relative paths with absolutes paths. I really appreciate your advice  
and this issue was addressed within one week of your email. If there  
is any other issue that you find with the web2py source code, please  
let us know and it will be addresses. At this point we are not aware  
of any open issue.

You also refer to "heard various critiques by others about it". Could  
you be more explicit? Unfortunately there are many incorrect posts  
online about web2py written by people who have not tried it or read  
the specs.
