We can make the program capable of handling the 4.0 data and release it as
soon as we feel it's ready, it would just have to be without 4e data. The
program itself is *not* under the OGL, past or future, nor can they make it
So, we could do the program work and send it out there for those intrepid
souls who want to enter their own data, and then release data sets for the
OGL content after Jan 1, 2009. (Which is what I think we should do
Some people can get the PHB in May when it's released, comb through it for
necessary functionality changes and start getting FREQs entered for 6.1 (I'd
