Yes, we are well aware of that.

We've been toying an idea for some years to rewrite the processing
backend after release of 2.0. We even have some initial code. How it
will look architecture-wise, AFAIK, remains an open question.

But we still need some sort of abstraction, because a huge part of the
user base is on Windows, and getting Audacity to work properly on
WIndows 7 was already quite an effort.

The good news is that last week we fixed the last big issues that were
blocking v2.0 release
