I meant with programming. It's only a fraction of my business. I love it - it's fun, but I am not going to stay married to it if it is going to turn into an ex wife (or husband) on me. I'd rather let it be someone elses problem.

I understand and agree. Features and stability are implied. Backwards compatibility however is something I think we are all willing to pay for. So don't let cost delay that, just keep us informed of any plan and what it will take.
