The fuss is over dilution of effort. Taking up valuable developer hours
porting from one to the other, multiple releases and bug lists, and most
important the cross posting on lists! :-)

Sure we cannot *make" people migrate, but what we can do is make it
*attractive* for them to migrate. If everything new is in OPAL, they will
make the effort. If we can get feedback from people we can do whatever it
takes to make migration as easy as possible. The ultimate goal would be just
to change the header files, add an OpalManager and everything else will
"just work". It's never that easy, but that was always the goal.

There is a lot I just cut out which I think is quite misinformed. But
arguing over details does not seem relevant in light of the last paragraph.

Very well. We cannot (nor should we be able to) stop you from going your own
way. So, as I said in my first posting, I believe the divergence will
continue and this makes me profoundly sad.
