	I suspect because Shake is dead, no further development is being done on it 
and there's not a lot of serious highend compositing apps out there except 
Discreet(get your wallet out), Nuke(bit of a curve, but has a great toolset), 
and Digital Fusion(which I saw demoed a month ago and it put me to sleep).

	To be honest, I never really ranked COPs as a serious competetor to the 
dedicated highend compositing, simply because there are some very basic nodes 
missing(a decent keyer, tracker and painter for the most part).  It is a 
good, basic compositing tool, however, once they get the bugs ironed out.
