Social inclusion, into a 'once-removed' scenario such as a mailing list, 
can be very constructive in recycling charcoal.

We can always use more fonts.

What makes it all work is the openness factor.
Developers get to see what accountants and bookkeepers perceive, and are 
in a position to modify programming to suit infield/locale practical 
Business geniuses like me get to see the potential for lost pounds that 
the accountants are missing, because they're concentrating to much on 
the pennies.
And the small, home-based enduser gets to learn from everybody else's 
mistakes, and don't underrate what they're capable of contributing either.

Focussing the entire community at one point is the strength of open source.
It's what it means.
Too much fragmentation can defeat that.
