Personally, I don't think there were enough developers to support
all these api's 8 or even 10 years ago. It has been a problem for
along time.

I am not anti-Magic, I used it for a few years on the ST nor am I
anti-TOS, but there are many older apps that work fine on these
systems. I suppose I'm preaching to the converted but does every
app have to work on every api ?
