VS 2010 Bugs Being Ignored?
It appears that Microsoft is no longer fixing minor bugs for VS 2010. Carlos Quintero has cited three bugs in EnvDTE that DJ has marked as “Won’t Fix” for this release. EnvDTE is the primary means by which .NET developers can build add-ons for Visual Studio.
The messages posted by DJ Park, the C# IDE Program Manager, follow this pattern:
Thanks for the feedback! Again, this is an issue that we would like to address but given that our current focus is on stabilizing and improving the performance of VS2010, we won't be able to address this issue for this release. I'm going to go ahead and resolve this bug as "Won't Fix" but please know that we'll be reviewing these issues as we begin planning for our next release. Thanks again for the great feedback, and keep it coming!
How about 3-year release cycles?

To shed some light around the decisions regarding these C# code model bugs, the main reason we decided not to fix these issues is because we are making longer term investments in a public language model. This API will do a much better job than the existing Code Model in surfacing our compilers and will provide a richer representation of code. As a result, we decided to limit our investment in EnvDTE/CodeModel and treat regressions of existing functionality with higher priority. The bugs in question, while important, existed in previous releases.

like Remember the transition from VC ++ 4 to 6? 4 was very ropey. What is a ropey transistion??
or This API will do a much better job than the existing Code Model in surfacing our compilers. How do you surface a compiler?? Is this like exposing, or is it like plastering?
