I'm out for the day as usual, but I thought this week I'd dispense with the softball questions and go for something with a bit more substance (and possibly contention): do you feel it's the role of retro-clones to supplement or replace the games on which they're based? Both? Neither? Should they be viewed as distinct games in their own right, publishers' copyright work-arounds, or something else entirely?
I realize this question was chewed over a lot in the early days of the old school renaissance, but a lot has happened over the last three years and I suspect the perspectives of some might have changed in light of how things have played out and I'd like to hear about it.
