Some want to. But they need to have VERY convincing arguments re. what we win for a bigger conversion than FAPI was. We do have a very working Drupal (jokingly, I refer to Drupal 6 as the Performing Polecat because it's so fast. And because metta's ferrets are cute.) So if you want to change a lot, there needs to be performance/feature wins, big time.

I am not 100% that menu will support an array for a callback (ie method call). Care to test it?
