        This should have been done years ago.
        -- Bugs due to use of obsolete libraries and functions are accumulating due to the slow release rate. The statically compiled ni is succumbing to bit rot, and is currently *actually broken on the most recent Linux kernel*. This is the sort of severe problem which could be fixed very quickly by the skilled programmers among your userbase.

        -- The documentation for Inform 7 is extremely poor to the point of unusability (the worst I've ever seen), the developers have shown a philosophical opposition to fixing it, and releasing the source would allow people to write their own documentation. I was unable to use Inform 7 at all without reading through the released Standard Rules and I6T sources. This helped, but to write proper documentation I need to be able to see exactly what ni is doing.
