It does NEED to it Myth is going to be a user-friendly application used by 

I'm trying to correct some notion that people should get used to the behaviour 
of Myth instead of making it better. Few applications written in the real, 
commercial, world survive if you tell customers to 'get used to it'. I'm not 
telling anyone to write the code - but several people are suggesting that it 
shouldn't be written.

people then it seems like a huge waste of potential and I know many people 
would not see the point of backing a project without that future.
