So am I. New wheels by quality people deserve a good test drive imho. Why not? They've provided quality help/code/responses in the past, and just because a wheel has been redesigned a few times, who's to say the newer design isn't more efficient/effective/durable?
I'm good with new thoughts on old problems; sometimes projects that have been around a while have a specific focus where possibly a new one has the agility to step outside the box and implement something new that nobody has seen before.
