You don't have to be 'on my side'.

One of the designed-in qualities of Aeolus is that it respects,
as much as is possible within the context of a software emulation,
the traditions of organ building. Which are very conservative,
anti-technology and whatever you want, like it or not.

Any changes that violate that principle, no matter how convenient
to the average user, destroy that quality and consequently harm my
interests as an author. Maybe you find that difficult to understand,
but that's how it is. Maybe the free software community fails to
understand that, in which case I feel completely justified not to
contribute to it.
