'Stretch' is as stretch does. The word implies all sorts of things:

1. Attaining those goals can be stretched for quite some time.

2. 'Stretching the truth' is a nifty phrase.

3. Remember those Physics lessons and Hooke's law?


If you go back and look at the Kickstarter goals ('goals' as in 'goals', 
let alone 'stretch goals')
you will see that there is quite some time to go before those have all 
been implemented.

One of the most interesting (and the most contentious as far as I am 
concerned) is a
new GUI . . . although I notice nothing has been said about that 
subsequently: whether
quietly dropped or shelved indefinitely, who knows.

In fact, if I am really honest I would be very happy if RunRev could 
give us some sort of
GANTT chart-like thing with all those Kickstarter goals and stretch 
goals so we could have
some idea as to when (relatively speaking) we could expect some of them 
to be implemented.


I would hope that your scepticism is caused by the lack of complete 
openness in RunRev's
part re attaining those goals, rather than their having dropped and/or 
adjusted some of them
post the Kickstarter campaign without telling the investors why.
