That's a fair point, and if I'd invested the time in changing my workflow to incorporate ST2, I would feel like the value was reasonable as it currently is.
My situation is a bit different: I've been on the fence since October, trying to assess the health of the project before I take the plunge. Since then, I've not seen any sign at all that this is a healthy, active project. To all outward appearances, the core product looks dead. Right now the plugin and user community is active, but if ST2 suffers death-by-bitrot, that community will inevitably deteriorate.
