Well, Henri, I've been using the daily build of viewer-development for 
two weeks and have only crashed once and I can definitively blame that 
on a video card overheat not the v2 code.

I appreciate the wish to backport rather than refactor everything to 
match the v2 codebase but as an inworld creator for a niche market I 
have to switch to v2 since the primary coder in that market is also 
migrating. I would regret being unable to use Cool for my primary 
testing alt. If LL is unwilling to wrap a 1.x UI around 2.x code, then 
surely that is an opportunity for skilled devs like you rather than the 
slap in the face that you seem to be taking it as.
