Breakthrough in the writers' strike?

An unnamed source leaked that there has been a breakthrough in talks between the two sides in the Hollywood writers' strike. This is great news on so many levels. Maybe now the AP can hire professionals to write their pieces:

The two sides breached the gap Friday on the thorniest issues, those concerning compensation for projects distributed via the Internet, said the person, who requested anonymity because he were not authorized to speak publicly.

I really do hope that the end is near. The Writers Guild of America has backed off its insistence of unionization for animation and reality shows. Now perhaps the studios can give in some ground on the flat fee verses percentage renumeration issue for Internet and mobile media distribution. Wouldn't we all like to see peace between sides in time for the Oscars on February 24th?
