atm, it's basically lack of developer time.  technically, ADI codecs
are no longer my job (they were marginally so in the past).  i do any
updates that i can slap together in my off time, but as soon as you
start talking about real issues (such as exposing registers or
programming the part differently), it's beyond my experience.  most of
the TLA's you throw around i have to look up ;).

so basically yes, i agree it's currently screwed up.
