Will Money Lead T20 To Edge Out Tests?

Patrick Compton writes an article asking if the money involved in T20 will push out or replace Tests. Now, there are too many traditionalists for this to happen. However, if he was to argue T20 pushing out ODI, perhaps. I could also see T20 becoming the type of "cricket" (there are those who even refuse to call ODI cricket) embraced by the US. There is a lot of money involved in T20, no doubt, and its quick format seems tailor made for todays fast paced world, and it is very TV friendly. But Tests are Tests, there is no need to fear the demise of the format.
