If you think of something else to add, there's no reason you can't edit your preceding post rather than starting a new one.

There is a sector of users who care enough about their performance to go to a web site to try to do some optimization, but not enough to install and figure out rawr. I think that these users might be content with just a tool that lets them experiment with outfit (reforging in this case), even with no automatic optimization of any kind.
More importantly I think rawr is too complicated for me to get involved into, while reforger so far was a day of work.
Rawr would compare to MS Word, and reforger in question be a notepad - just enough to get work done... at least at the present stage of the project.
