It took me a long time, but I eventually realised that *no one* owes me
their time here. I've had issues on questions and ports I've raised
repeatedly for months; if no one has the knowledge to help me, I have to
accept it and move on. Try not to hold it against anyone that sometimes,
your answer just isn't known.

Looking at this, I honestly think that you made a mistake deciding
against hacking the code yourself for fear of duplication of efforts.
You seem to be comfortable getting in there and dealing with the guts of
code yourself; go for it. At the very worst, it's duplication of effort,
but it will *never* be a waste of time.
Scratch your own itch; it's the best way to go.
