To add insult to injury, those of us who are motivated to do a little
programming to improve the Ventura filter, and its ill bred kin, don't
have that as a realistic option. In Word, the developer's kit is <$50.
In Frame4, the developer's kit is >$1,000.

As much as I like using Frame4, I really do wonder about their way of
doing business.
