I hope we're finally at a point where community members realized that Rock isn't just a new config screen, but a framework behind that config screen. I don't know why ckk decided to write RockConfig as default interface for configuring Rock based addons, but he probably had his reasons.
This doesn't mean that we'll never see a drop-down configuration for Rock addons. The options table is still available and it's just a matter of someone spending some time rewriting a kind-of DewDrop for Rock addons (aka LibRockDewDrop or LibRockDropDown) that parses this options table and displays the data in a different way.
As I currently have little time and haven't been in the IRC channel for a while, I might have missed the information - which is why I'm asking here: is someone actively planning to write that library yet? Or are we all just waiting and hoping for ckk to have some spare time (and motivation) to write it?
Personally, I'm looking forward to such a library...
