Well, I actually don't know what the "issues" are, but am very
interested in hearing them!

It would really be helpful for us if you described what "issues" you
are aiming to solve. Without that I'm not even sure I'd like to spend
too much time evaluating your fork. But if it turns out that you aim
to tackle issues that I also have a problem with, I will surely give
Pillow a try.
