Well, I fear this may end up being another of those "easier to
reinvent" wheels. All of your issues with RE's are the same ones I had

Any chance for convergence here?
(BTW, there is nothing inherently wrong with "reinventing wheels". The
metaphor is a bit flawed, since there are many different types of
wheels in the world, and not all interchangeable - consider a tractor
wheel vs. a bicycle wheel. Some legitimate/valid/justified endeavors
are wrongly indicted for "reinventing the wheel" when in fact they are
focusing on a particular niche of wheeldom, deserving of its own
