Actually, it has been worse before the Sansa AMS targets :)

Anyway, I agree that we should at least consider the first RaaA release
for justifying a 4.0. I remember the lot of feedback over the web we got
for 3.0 (which wasn't quite as big for the following releases), but OTOH
it could also have been that strong because it was the first release
after several years.

I think we could get RaaA (the actual port) into release quality quite
soon with a bit of effort (maybe even for 3.7). But blocking is actually
the touchscreen interface. We have still many places where you're simply
stuck completely with the absolute point mode (EQ, pitchscreen). That's
not an RaaA specific issue, but it rather blocks the release quality of
it. So yes, it's probably better to have a 3.7 before.

Best regards.
