  Like all general methodologies, it's more applicable to some projects than
  others. I found that a lot of our best teams naturally gravitated pretty
  close to an XP approach without knowing any of the terminology

Geographically distributed projects like Webmind can't apply all of the practices (not until we have live teleconferencing :-) ). But the core programming practices (Pair Programming, Refactoring, Test-first, and Simple Design) seem to be universally applicable. And XP is like patterns: most of the practices have been practiced by the top programmer and teams for quite a while. So when one of those sees XP most of it is nothing new. This is a good sign. :-)
