We're in agreement that it should be moved to use a layered provider,
but I think we disagree about how important it is at the moment. In any
case, I'm willing to put up some money to get this done as it's difficult
to get volunteers. I'll get to it eventually if nobody else does but it
definately won't be this year.
Well if anybody is willing to take me up on the bounty and implement it
earlier, I'm offering $50.
Here's a simple experiment. Stand on a train track between two locomotives
which are pushing on you with equal force in opposite directions. You will
exhibit no net motion. None the less, you may soon begin to notice that
something important is happening.
