Improving the code quality is always a good thing -- it makes adding new
features more enjoyable.

Most projects suffer from nobody *wanting* to do refactoring. Here we
have people who volunteer for this -- and you try to discourage them?
That's really a shame :-(

That's probably true -- but it doesn't work like that in a volunteer
project. People work on what they are interested in themselfs. Trying to
tell volunteers what they should work on, will just make sure they loose
interest in working on the project at all.

But I'm glad to hear that you want to work on AVM2 next... ;-)
