I have a friend who has published with O'Reilly before, and he has
given me the impression that O'Reilly likes to initiate the idea that
a book needs to be written.  They don't like to be solicited to.  So,
perhaps if at some point in the future Catalyst becomes a well known
competitor in the framework space, they will begin looking for someone
to write the O'Reilly book.  Continuing to advertise and attract more
users is probably a good way to eventually get their attention...


p.s.  Or maybe not, who really knows.
