Makes a difference to makers, preservers... there's usually a
presumption of value to those who are serious (and the negative
presumptions are often, I think, disingenuous & fraught with unstated
subtext - as in Kafka's letters to Max Brod etc etc)

But if WHAT makes it good is what emerges from the _materials_ and
how that happens then I think you can't dismiss these issues out of
hand either.
