[Split] Target Audience?

I think the important point with the current results is that the framework needs to remain flexible. Enterprise and large development teams may need other features, but, so far, they seem to be willing to find/provide them for themselves. (Of course, I would certainly welcome core development in this area if someone is willing to do it, but, like many of CI's existing features, it should be an optional component of the framework.)

The biggest drawback to the diversity of the current user base is that it becomes hard to justify changes that might inconvenience one part of the user base in favor of another. Almost any feature demanded by one part of the community is seen as bloat by another.

In the end, I think CI 4 should largely be a release which focuses on supporting key language features in PHP itself rather than adding new framework features. It may be a difficult approach to take, given that CI 3 did not add much, either, but I think it will gain the framework more positive attention from the community than any number of new features which may simply become divisive points within the community.
