mrchocky: "ah yes. As usual, users are insisting that developers don't know what they're talking about, despite their considerable experience with OS development."

I have absolutely no idea how you managed to come to that incredibly creative conclusion reading what I wrote. Nowhere did I claim that developers don't know what they're talking about or even implied it, I was simply trying to clarify to you that what most people here are referring to when the talk about the OS fork, that being the ROL path vs. the Castle path and that you are talking about a different thing although related and that you were being your usual condecending know-it-all about it. Everyone knows that there are several old versions of RISC OS around that developers have to take into consideration, nobody has ever tried to deny that but that is not the issue being talked about. For once, try to let people speak for themselves, even when it doesn't fit with what you want to argue about.
