Basically, I am in agreement with this.  I don't see why
we couldn't use TFT as a model for the new game though.
Didn't Steve essentially do the same thing with GURPS?

Steve Jackson owns the rights to Ogre/GEV and since he's
just re-released it, I doubt he'd be interested in selling
it to anyone.  Ogre/GEV is being sold as a combined game 
in a VCR box and the expansion kit, Shockwave, was just
released in a ziplock format.
