This is way out there but here's what I think.

Roth is a smart guy and has been around the 3D scene a long time. Electric Image was his baby, especially Camera, which was a wonderful piece of software...and may still be. When he joined NewTek I think he laid out the fact that they had a problem that wasn't going to be easily overlooked. To bring their flagship program into a more competitive position it needed to be modernized. The core of the program needed to be rewritten is what I believe he told them, and he agreed to come on board if they agreed to his redesign of Lightwave. I believe that is whats happening. I think we will see a completely new LW with one all inclusive work/render platform like most other modern apps. Lightwave now is really one big plugin and the core rewrite that I think is going on will change all that.

I think it's time to start thinking in those terms...or of course I could be wrong.
