[KSB] No, EWD has not reached the mass market.  From what I have been
told, it is
in use at a large nationwide diagnostic lab services provider (the
kind of place where
one goes for blood tests) and supports 20-30,000 concurrent users in
daily production
use.  Also, because of HIPAA regulations, that implementation undergoes annual
penetration testing by one of the large ethical cracking outfits, and
passes the tests
every year.

It is promoted by the guys who sell consulting and training services
for it.  It's also
dual licensed.  That's a common business model in the FOSS world.

Note: EWD is not a toolkit.  It is intended for use with a toolkit
such as ExtJS.
