As I have said, I’m fine with spending 2500 on a dead proprietary technology because some long term contributors rely on it and because it’s part of our legacy, but only because I’m not applying an 80/20 rule, but an 99/1 rule ;-) With an 80/20 approach it would not make sense because there are already a lot of alternative editing possibilities available.

you are suggesting that the PL2 development is worth several millions of dollars/euros/pounds? Let’s remain serious. Several millions would be tens of man-years.
