  1. Its not the first time i see some useful(big,small doesn't matter) feature thats an addon and not a core tool. Then this awesome addon is forgotten and some feature like this appears in another package and gets updates while Blender users can only say "yeah, we've had this feature for years|years ago".
    On another note some useful stuff are disabled by default and trust me, majority of users won't even know that they had some useful stuff right under their nose. And partially thats because sometimes those features make UI overcomplicated. But isn't it better to remake the idea of where and how to place those features so that they will be always there?

    • @swamp-fish, Agree that certain core functionality shouldn't be kept as addons. I'll check with the author, but think this can be merged into the core tool without too much trouble. (Think I can manage to do this for 2.69 release).

  2. Thank you, guys, for your feedback!
    And especially thanks to ideasman42!
    I hope we'll see GFM builded in 2.69 ;-J
