Well, The problem is in companies that don't want their solution to get better. 
VIA does not give any details about CLE chipset at all. This way you cannot expect LB work faster/better than legacy software.
So when even such innovative company as carbot claims that they are unable to use VIA solutions along the way, it may force somebody to think.
Ask Ron about some other vendors who's more responsible than VIA and how fast LB works there...
I'm also thinking to switch to some other motherboard with better docs support.
