For the record, a nit or two: it was not my decision that “Loki needed to havetools available”. Neither was it my call to “commit resources”. However, afterthe decision had been taken that Loki would fund work on a map editor, I didpush for a Gtk port of id’s original editor or a derivative, instead ofattempting to write an editor from scratch. Had I known Loki’s true financialsituation, I would have opposed this and other non-profit efforts in far moreforceful terms. More importantly: the person that did the bulk of the work on GtkRadiant wasLeonardo Zide (of LeoCAD fame, http://www.leocad.org/). Leo spent about a yearputting GtkRadiant together. He worked under contract for Loki, and unlike theregular Loki employees who lost one to two months worth of salary, he wascheated out of almost every dollar Loki owed him. Without his work, I doubt thatGtkRadiant would have ever come into existence.
