That's pretty much what I think. I didn't say anything at the time all this development was going on because it would have made no difference (I'm just a "Joe User", not a skilled C programmer who could have contributed), and besides, it surely would have come across as churlish.

Actually, I think it would have been better for you to have spoken up back then.If everybody felt that way, but no one was willing to speak up, how could we have known about it? I've expressed my disappointment about this before:

The way it looks to me is this:

Most users don't bother to respond at all, and it's unclear what their opinions are (or even if they have decided upon one).

Of those who do wish to speak up, a bare majority seem to generally agree with most changes, a very large minority disagree, and a much smaller minority have no opinion.

For an example, see:

I paid for Euphoria updates for years and was happy to do it. Not knocking open source, and of course it was Rob's decision, but IMO it would have been better if he could have stayed on as a "benevolent dictator". Design by committee doesn't really work very well.

You might be interested in this project then:

Anyway, I'm not complaining. Eu 3 suits my needs perfectly and I'll be sticking with it. It's a pity it's not being maintained any more, although I doubt there are many bugs (I haven't found any yet).

Again, I'm surprised. As I've stated before, it definitely does have known bugs:
