Personally I can thing of lots of other things I'd rather see them put their time into. Obviously you think they should put time into reflow of pdf. Neither of us are wrong nor is Kobo. We (like all kinds of Kobo owners) have different priorities for what we want and Kobo only has so many hours of development time so they prioritize what they see as important (which might not be what you or I want at the top of the list).
I am astounded that people can argue that it is so hard to do, when it's been done, very successfully, by other ereader manufacturers. It doesn't make the PDF into a perfect epub, but it makes it much more pleasurable to read, and that's all we are asking.
