This system works completely different from Blender, and its 'features =20=

and limitations' page is quite disturbing... however, it does support =20=

quite some more motion systems.

A proposal for a 'rewrite' can only be evaluated if you think someone's =20=

going to do the coding and technical design for it.

If a discussion can be limited to defining a couple of features that we =20=

see missing, then I can at least advise on what the feasibility is to =20=

improve/adjust the current implementation.
