well.. i defined what i considered successful in that specific quote (which was very tongue-in-cheek)

on a serious side, as you said.. the latter is what i'd prefer.. but the two don't have to be mutually exclusive (in fact, i'd bet that if your real focus was the second.. having the first come along would help things out)
