More fun with Carsten and Fallout 3

In yet another thread on the Silver Style forums, super pimp monger Carsten Strehse has posted a page long thingy about how cool it would be if they made Fallout 3 or something like that. Here's just one paragraph:
Everybody should remember the start of this complete FO3 discussion. We always said that we would be more than happy to see a FO3 from a developer which was involved in the development of FO1 or 2. Simply why we love the game (Never forget: Game developers are also gamers. If you aren't a gamer, it's nearly impossible to work on the creative side of the games business). We made the risky step to ask the community about their opinion about a FO3 from SSE. Especially if no other developer can handle it because of financial reasons or something we thought this would make sense for the community. On the other hand we wanted to develop FO3 because we are fans of the FO universe. I'm very sure that I played both games more often than a lot of hardcore fans. Not only because it's fun playing them, but since it's my job to analyze games in detail. I appreciate comments telling me that a FO3 would need this and that, but you can believe me that none of these comments tell me something new. I always said, we would only develop a FO3 if a) we can make sure that it catches the "spirit" of FO1 and FO2 (including TB, blood & gore, FO1 humor etc.), b) we can make sure that ex-BIS staff is involved, c) the community thinks it makes sense.
I'd still rather see Chris Taylor, Tim Cain, Jason Anderson, Feargus Urquhart, Leon Boyarsky, and the rest of the original crew consulted before they just pulled aside anyone that ever worked at Black Isle. It'll never happen, though, but a man can dream.
