Any idea of who are these deployers? I think I knew once who they might 
have been but I'm not really sure anymore. Are they still doing this 
(and can afford doing it)? Why don't we hear more about them? I'd expect 
that deployers (and there associated developer army) that are trying to 
do this would be the *most* active in IRC and in the mailing list yet I 
don't really see any such activity (which either means we never break 
them, which seems highly unlikely, or that they don't communicate 
through the normal channels, ie they go through some vendor, or that 
they just flat out don't exist anymore).

I'd personally really like to know how they do it (especially if they do 
not have an associated developer army)... Because they have always been 
a pink elephant that I've heard exists 'somewhere' and they manage to 
make this all work 'somehow'.
