I too have wondered about these comments.  I know I wrote a driver for 
the DEQNA for the C Gateway and I don't recall having any particular 
difficulty with it.  It wasn't as good a programming interface as the 
Proteon Ringnet, for example, but everything was trending to becoming 
more complex at that point (like how programming the RK11 compares with 
MSCP).  The DQNA worked for me though and just kept on working.
