I don't know much details, and haven't heard a direct statement on this
from Marcus for ages. I'm pretty sure Richard's information is more
correct than anything I could write.
All I can say is what I told you already several months ago: That Marcus
seems to have become more "conservative" again. My impression is that he
no longer wants to rewrite everything to create a perfect system, but
rather focuses on the areas that most need improvement, and otherwise
tries to keep as much as possible.
