mckinlay: IIRC Select has a lot of under-the-hood changes too - improved stability and much tidier code are two examples. Trouble is the end user doesn't really get to see them in normal use.

Whatever ROL's current position, consider that we would probably still be using 3.7 on ageing RPCs or dog-slow 7500FEs if it wasn't for ROL stepping in, acquiring the rights to RO4, and maintaining development after Acorn died. :-)
