That second web site looks really cool.  They say they want people to
try it out, but I couldn't find a place to download it.  I would love to
try it out.

But as to your first point, why do you carp quite so much on people who
point out the lack of some feature, but don't have the time or abilities
to contribute?  Maybe those other people are engaged in other worthwhile
projects that are taking up their time, and maybe they even deal with
complaints about their projects, but don't immediately jump down the
other people's throats with "well, what have you done to help?"
Especially when those people are not actually whining, but just asking
or answering questions.
