Not having seen much of all the work, this sounds like it is a sad day,
for Martin who contributed a lot of his time to work on the issues,
while people seemed not to be too grateful, screaming from either end of
the road, this must wear people out.

Is there a way how the improvements that parts of the stuff have
received can be rescued somehow? Or at least the knowledge of which can
be used somewhat directly for a IDE-TNG driver? I'd find it really sad
to just let go of so much time that had been invested into the project
-- but keep in mind I have NO knowledge of the gory details of the last
2.5 IDE stuff.
