I consider "ckknight" to be one of the leading addon developers, but I can't understand why he neglected the people wanting to configure another way then this when launching "Rock".
It probably comes down to the Software Engineering three-way fight. Time versus Money versus Quality. As ckk codes his addon for free as a hobby, Money = 0. So, something has to balance that out, Time goes up if Quality remains constant. Now, ckk is an excellent programmer in my opinion, and he values the quality of his code, so he tried to keep that high with Rock. Which would mean the time factor explodes upward. So, rather than leave everything in a state of limbo until he finished Rock, he released what is a working version, although not fully featured (perhaps).
So, just give some more time and Rock will be up to the standards everyone wants.
