There are too many variants.

In my opinion:

There are too many variants. It would be better if there were less. Because: at the moment, each positive change made to a variant either
(i) takes a lot of effort to port to all the other variants, or
(ii) is only experienced by a small fraction of the community.

The best way to reduce the number of variants is to combine two variants into a single super-variant that has the best attributes of both.

For instance I would love to see someone turn Quickband into a 'quick mode' of some other variant (or V). I'd then be happy to pronounce the original Quick variant dead and put future coding efforts into the 'quick mode'.

Any other variant authors out there who would like to see their variants merged?
