Why don't the companies, which read this list (among which is mine)
throw together money, hire a full time developer for a year, who
integrates all of these currently foreign slide formats that are still
missing into OpenSlide (e. g. Olympus, Zeiss, Precipoint, etc pp)?

We can get someone e. g. in Germany for €60k /year  incl. all costs. If
there are 6 or more companies here, each pays €10k. I'd be totally up
for it.
