No, I'm basing this on the experience of just completing a port of half a million lines of data transformation code to 5 new target platforms. For files, if you provide simple detection code you can switch the orientation in stream without modifying the source data. My point is that the biggest obstacle to overcome appears to be political more than technical.
As far as VP is concerned, the jury still appears to be out. Yes, in an ideal world this would be the most manageable solution but it still seems pretty spartan and the performance may be iffy. Amiga indicated that this is there intention for OS5, but are they working in conjunction with Hyperion to make this a reality or is it all a pipe dream?
