Last time I checked, Vishal was comparing multiple alternatives. This
likely doesn't have any priority right now as the revenue from
merchandising tends to be comparatively small.

I'm fairly happy with everything I've purchased through CP, but I'm
probably about 20 degrees removed from a person who could give an
informed opinion about such matters. That said, mere rumors and
personal anecdotes are not particularly compelling. I'd like to hear
some more substantive criticisms than "poor quality", preferably a
comparison of multiple vendors published in a reliable source. If it's
not sufficiently sourced by Wikipedia's standards of inclusion, it's
not enough to base a decision on. ;-)
