Just wanted to say thanks for all your hard work and effort you've put into the DataObjectManager. Also for your endless support here.

Your module was the sole reason I decided to give Silverstripe a try because it added functionality that I was needed in the site I was testing it out on. It was a easy to use and added some much needed features.

Unfortunately, I've recently migrated that site to Wordpress after about 6 months of the Silverstripe site being live. There were just too many little headaches and time spent debugging instead of coding. I really liked Silverstripe and wanted to give it a fair chance, but I didn't feel comfortable releasing the project into the customers hands and walking away and honestly it was time to upgrade and that prospect scared me.

It took me 2 days to totally rebuild the site from scratch with Wordpress using all core functionality with no plugins (modules).

I just wanted to thank you in particular because without your module, Silverstripe wouldn't have even gotten a chance. Hopefully the Silverstripe team see how valuable your addition is and throw some support your way.
