I don't know if it makes any sense at all to review John's library.
According to it hasn't been
updated for one and a half years while Andrey is actively working on his
library (for how long has the library be in the queue?). I've been
following the development of both libraries and admit that I also prefer
Andrey's (I used John's before I switched to Andrey's). But John's library
looks abandoned anyway?


PS: Actually John's entire website looks abandoned - is he still around
