Remember any RISC OS application is utterly useless running on it's own. Every application needs to communicate with at least the filer in order to load and save files, and other applications to allow the drag and drop transfers which we find so useful.

Problems come if you have to communicate between these separate RISC OS shells, whether they are CMT to CMT or CMT to PMT, to uphold the rules existing applications expect two or more shells will have to stall, and the system will at best appear to work as it does now, at worst be an awful unpredictable mess like Windows 9X.

There really aren't any shortcuts here, either you do things properly (which is now beyond our resources), or you'll just make the user experience worse.
