Now, this implies that the support people actually HAVE some contact with
developers. This is not always the case. I worked in support at a major
company and the development happened in a totally different part of the
and my only contact with the developers was through email, and even that
happen very often. It was primarily "write up a problem report" if you
bug. Oftentimes the CUSTOMERS would have more contact with the development
then we would.

Again, this implies that the support people have some say in the product
