Jamie has a point, you know. Albeit cleverly disguised amidst the sarcasm.
Progress for progress' sake is an absurd motivation. That is, replacing
an app with a functionally inferior one just because it uses old
libraries isn't sensible. If you replace an app, the new one should be
*better* than the old one. The goal isn't to make new programs better,
it's to use the best programs.
In this case it's already been explained the library change directly
translates in end-user benefits.
