I did not say that. And for all I know his commentary may be the best ever 
done. I am just saying that some people are going to want credentials or a 
trusted standard. This is more of a problem in English where there are 
other programs with standard works. In languages where there are no 
commentaries, for software or even in print, a TDH commentary could be a 
big hit.

Also, I think it would be well worth the effort for anyone to produce their 
own personal commentary. The process of writing down comments, passage by 
passage is rewarding. But, if I was getting a commentary for others to use, 
I would be glad to find someone with better insights than mine to write it. 
But, that would not stop me from producing my own and distributing it as I 
saw fit.
