Completely agree and from a developers point of view this isn't a small
task. I think there could be some really nice payoffs for this, but I don't
want to loose any of the existing work. There are a lot of add-ins already
in place and supported; these wouldn't migrate over to Mac or IOS or such.
That would be another discussion how to best handle that.
