True enough, but so long as we're asking for desirable features :-)
Actually, I think the legwork was already done when they got timeshift done. After that, it's GUI logistics to separate record from playback. I'd say it's technically fairly easy, as opposed to the herculean feat they accomplished when they were able to separate record from playback in the hardware. However, it might be time consuming to re-design things. It might be simpler to wrap record and playback into a DLL and provide an SDK for us to wrap our own GUI around.
I wasn't aware there was an SDK at all. It'd be interesting to know whether the above record/playback separation is exposed, and how flexible the SDK is. But no matter what, I'm certainly not able to pay for it, since I have no way of making any money back. I was offering my services to MIT for our mutual benefit. They could have my work and improve their product, and I'd get the features I desire.
BTW, a registry hack has the problem that the MyHD s/w reads the registry on entry and re-writes it when it's changed, so you have to be sure the MyHD app isn't running or all your changes will be destroyed.
