I was one of the ones who didn't contribute because I have very little interest in data grids, and right now I have very little time to read this list - so I just went with the 'data grid' headline and concluded that it wasn't for me. Jacque's post belatedly made me regret this. 

In retrospect I'm glad the funding came in.

Sorry I wasn't more help.

A subset of users employ datagrids, but everyone needs smooth scrolling in a variety of situations. That's the primary reason I pledged -- I'm not too interested in datagrid performance but the inability to properly scroll fields within groups is big hurdle in almost every project I do.
