I still remember conversations over lunch about how Pedro did not want to be a dev lead/manager, having done it before. How his real passion was development. Therefore, I was taken a back when I saw the announcement so I ran over to Pedro's office to confirm.
Evidently, they made him an offer he couldn't refuse. Let's hope that the dev manager (Dave Sauntry) did not resort to methods that involve horse carcass. :)
Not to worry, Pedro will continue to actively develop the DSL tools.
