This is not useful or constructive feedback.  A quick search with  
Google shows that a fair number of people are happy with it.

If your statement that "It's a mess" is based on this post, the  
problem is a limitation of Pages' AppleScript support.  Unfortunate,  
but it doesn't really reflect on CiteInPages itself, and James  
responded to your question less than an hour after you posted it.
