Has Strand ever considered a replacement for the Reporter Software that came with the SLD dimmer systems?

I'm still using it for my SLD racks and Outlook. I find it useful mostly for reporting "No Loads" indicating that a lamp has burned out or "Load Errors" indicating such things as a burnout in a two-ferred circuit or even forecasting a lamp that is soon to blow by showing a measured load that is significantly greater than the recorded load. It, of course, is essential for programming our old Outlook architectural system, but very awkward for someone to use that is not familiar with it. I have also used it for re-patching circuits in the rack - for example our cyc circuits(and most circuits in the building) are odd numbers stage left/even numbers stage right(not my idea). This, of course doesn't work if you want to set up the cyc for RGB which I have done. In order to do this I had to repatch circuits in the rack to be numbered consecutively. So I guess my wish list in a nutshell would be to have the functionality of the program but with a more up-to-date interface.
