Then using the v3 16bit is probably the most realistic option.
And jeromes patch should probably be applied

I hope this will not reduce interrest in working on a improved

I want to understand this too. IMO v4 development should be more
important than or at least equally to the v3 draft polishing and neither 
should block the other.
