Because I am not as smart as you, and my brain gets full sooner :). I
only know to do big features in pieces. As it is already, each refresh
costs me days to merge, resolving conflicts, looking at code to see what
changed, etc.. then almost always something breaks, and takes a while
to debug. I got linux side patch to watch out too.

My understanding with previous maintainers was, establish a baseline with
something working, then keep adding bells and whistles to it. This is an
effort to that end. I am also OK dropping the ball on pvh and let
someones else who can finish it all in one shot do it.

Thanks again for all your time and input, you are thorough :).
