I don't code but I have worked on big engineering projects. Things get fixed prehaps not on time but in a resonable amount of time. I feel the issue here was not the difficulty of the task but rather no one cared. If it were part of the stratergy (ie important) there would have been folks working on it.

Now please don't tell me it was all volunteers and they simply work on what interests them. A large amount of the resources were supplied by Netscape. If say the drivers felt it was important stratigically by george it would have been done.
