Thats the problem. Remy had to do oodles more work for relatively little 
benefit in the end. I am not sure if I was subscribed for the whole thing but 
I recall that it went on for ages where Slide was broken enough that they 
ended up forking back to original code. I have enough work on my plate as it 
is and have no want to add more work.
