Basically ponder for a moment which you think is a worse scenario: A: Despite being hammered by fans wanting the originals, Lucasfilm keeps it's promise and the originals never come out officially on DVD. Purist Fans grudgingly buy the special edition dvd, but plan to murder George Lucas whilst naked at an opera. Many twisted fans remain glad he died. B: Lucasfilm realises after the hammering they are getting from fans, that they owe it to them to offer the originals on DVD. Half are happy that they got their way whilst the other half whine about it on the Internet and treat George Lucas like a politician rather than a businessman and plan to kill him whilst naked at an opera. At least with option B the purist fans get what they want- and deserve. People make promises- but at least don't you find some nobility in that he gave the fans what thet wanted, rather than remaining stubborn about it.
