13 - Why not just use LibSink?

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?

r40 log notes: "- added Parrot support - added MSBT support". Why not just use LibSink-2.0 (http://www.wowace.com/projects/libsink-2-0/) ?

It supports output to the above mods, ScrollingCombatText (on this site), Blizzard's scrolling text, the raid warning frame and so on. You don't have to code into your mod support for everything; its already there in that library. And you don't have to be concerned with changes to supported mods in your own mod. LibSink has always been updated to handle major changes to such mods and/or the Blizzard API.

Yes, its project page says "out of date", but it works fine in WoW 3.0.3 (it was tagged by Rabbit for WoW 3.0). Its likely to be updated (and or moved on as to major version number)--if needed in the future--due to the large number of mods that use it.
