[OS X TeX] The measure of progress

I'm concerned about the rate of change for TeXShop. Incremental changes 
in the decimal column mean that it will take 81 changes for us to ever 
get to TeXShop 2.00. Assuming, for the moment, a constant rate of 
revision of one change every month, that means that we will not get to 
2.00 for almost seven years!

But the reality is likely to be far worse. If we assume that Dick Koch 
improves TeXShop with every revision, so as to make future revisions 
less needed and therefore less frequent, I think we can easily envision 
a scenario whereby none of us ever lives to see TeXShop 2.00!

Easter can easily bring on morbid reflections on death and change. Is 
the solution here simply more prayer and fasting?

In concern
