Okay, obviously we can't convince you. Nice. But OTOH it also looks like you can't convince us. Let's call it even :)) See, the recent article from Daniel Switkin on OSNews agrees with you on that point - but although he also has very good arguments to drop binary compatibility, I still manage to keep my opinion - with good arguments on my part, too. Anyway, it also looks like the people who contribute are able to agree on this point. That's why I meant: bear with us and our so short- sighted decision, accept it :-) Adios... Axel.
