How do you define better?
Afair, and as far as you confirmed, many bugs were found 
in the new API. Why are you so sure we already found

You mean the "API" that needs new special code (and new 
callbacks) for every new hardware acceleration because 
unfortunately they do not share concepts?

He has worked so hard for so many years to make sure 
I don't talk to him anymore, I don't want to spoil 
his efforts.
