I can try to understand these concerns, but from a practical point of 
view it is quite difficult for someone who is not a (former) Symphony 
team member, or who wasn't involved with porting code from Symphony, to 
write a meaningful post about the improvements that the Symphony 
contribution made possible.

For example, analyzing the hundreds of [From Symphony] issues would not 
be feasible for me. Well, let's see if someone else takes the challenge, 
but honestly there's nobody better than the people who know Symphony to 
describe what was ported and what areas will benefit from its code most...
