You are not being paranoid.  I have been uneasy about the forked rhino code 
but  have kept quiet because I'm such a junior member of this community, 
because I personally did not feel able (time or knowledge wise) to help fix 
the situation, and because I am so behind on really understanding flow and 
continuations.  But I think the longer we go on building on this sand the 
more trouble we will be in when the inevitable happens.  I for one am 
reading every word you two write.
