Anyway, I agree that a homegrown application is nicer. Question is just if it's realistic to get it up to the level people expect with the very limited resources
Problem with a home grown solution is the coder can and most likely will pick up his toys and go home at some point. The community could throw a bunch of money at it but there is no guarantee of anything. If the community threw a bunch of money at porting something like OO and actually got it ported, the source code would always be open. If the coder(s) gave up and moved on, someone else theoretically could pick it up.
