At the risk of being accused of supporting RunRev (yeah, I know, that's  
bit hard to take), I would like to
take issue with that word "stretched", speaking as a person who is 
constantly stretched in many ways . . .

RunRev have been extremely ambitious; to, not only to deliver a fully 
Open Source version of their
absolutely f**king marvellous, b**l-busting "thang", but to do all sorts 
of jazzy things as well; goals and
stretch goals.

Now, in September last year (2012) my wife and remarked that we really 
needed to sand down our lovely round kitchen table given to us by my 
parents when we moved to Bulgaria some 8 years ago. Last weekend
I sanded it down and she varnished the table.

Not owing to procrastination, but to the fact that things which were far 
more urgent kept cropping up; most
of which could not have been foreseen 13 months ago.

If one takes a virtual wander over here: 
http://livecode.com/community/roadmap/

you will see just how ambitious RunRev's 'roadmap' is . . .

And, if they live in the real world (and, hey, that office in the New 
Town in Edinburgh felt like the real
world when I visited it some 4/5 years ago), absolutely everything will 
take longer to achieve than originally
envisaged.

Richmond.
