No, I explained the factors which affect prioritization at a company 
like RunRev.

I will not reiterate that anymore.  The archives for this list are

The readers of this user-to-user forum will not be able to help you with 
this request.  You can contact RunRev here:

Let me save you some time:  while I'm aware of pending changes to the 
engine which may address some of the issues you've had, I'm not aware of 
anything in v4.5 specifically which will do so.

As an avid backpacker I can't speak highly enough of the value of a good 
walk.  If you come to California during the fall or spring I would be 
happy to share some of the Mojave desert with you.  I find a couple days 
immersed in the sparse beauty of the desert very refreshing.

Happy to help when I can.

Best of luck with your endeavors.
