Esperanto is a nice idea, but it's biggest failing is that it is based on European languages. It's linguistic imperialism at it's best :)

Yea, that's a pretty valid point-- but at this point, it's the best option we have for an international aux language. It already has a pretty large following, and splitting from it would further put a stake in the idea of a conlang being a prominent auxlang. (Not that it isn't already dead, but there's no need to kick the horse any further.)
