You guys accomplished did a lot of good work on V, I just wish v4 happened earlier. I wonder where we would be now if v4 didn't happen?
FWIW I too wish v4 had happened earlier. It was suggested about six or eight months earlier by d_m & Gabe Cunningham, and I very much regret arguing against it then. Still, better late than never. It is now possible to 'fix' V and still experiment with riskier 'improvements' in v4, and hopefully we'll get the best of both worlds. We are in a fallow period at the moment though - fewer active devs than at any time in the past three years. I'm guessing things will pick up around or after xmas.

And yes, I accept the charge of being too reluctant to remove things - I did most of the arguing against doing so, which exacerbated the problem.
