Just to clarify,
I disagree with "The bridge between ThomasV and de.WS has been burnt."

We have strong controverse discussions and still different viewpoints - unfortunately there is no movement of ThomasV in any of his statements. But we must use ThomasV work and find ways to get better solutions. 

One of our big problems is, that there is neihter a js-programmer  nor an php programmer  in our community to find better implementations or workarounds for the problems.

And I agree to the content of Dr. Klaus Graf  statements.

But I hope that we can stay with the technical arguments and find solutions.

History for those on Wikitech-l

The bridge between ThomasV and de.WS has been burnt.

The resolution of this particular bug, which is dear to de.WS and ambivalent outside of de.WS, will absolutely require a new dev taking interest.

I hope we can avoid rehashing the all the could-a, should-a, would-a again and focus on what can be accomplished from where things stand.
