You know, I feel strongly that WotC should ALWAYS support all previous editions and settings. I would love to hear your thoughts for some ways to convince WotC that this will be feasible. Can it really be that hard to write a few new adventures for every old edition EVERY YEAR, plus a few supplements for settings? I am sure talent can be drawn from the fans to fill EVERY NICHE. I would suggest doing this under a spirit and marketing plan of "to promote gaming". Or more specificially, the kind of table-top RPG's these are, which I think the industry should recognize has enough value to be passed down to future generations. Especially with so much computer gaming now, and in a world of standardization and globalization, D&D is one thing that teaches people creative, independent, and cooperative thinking. It is invaluable, along with the role-playing skills to be picked up.
