Oh please. The Netherlands have a moderate climate, moderate lighting conditions.
Move anywhere north, east or south and conditions are worse.
Furthermore, in the west there's light emitting from greenhouses, harbors, highways (sodium-vapor) and residences.
The Christmas trees, they are hurting my eyes.

I'm not very clear on just where the acceleration is missing, but it sounds like it's missing in a foundational piece.

Yup. Beat around the bush. Yadda Yadda about compatibility layer upon compatibility layer to keep features before acceleration. Just start anew & solid and the rest will follow.
