But equally, you can't compare new code and old code by what it says it does on the tin. If
the 2004 version was totally rewritten, that could indicate serious problems with the older
code that couldn't be remedied in an evolutionary manner: even if the old code allocated
widgets, if it did so in such a manner that it was basically unusable to some large proportion
of people, then it's not really relevant that the "feature" was around in 2000 or earlier.
