As someone who has also used smoke in the past I 100% agree. The new smoke is a triumph of marketing. Because its the old smoke with some ui tweaks. Once you get past the editing interface, it's still every bit the old smoke. As tough and obscure as it ever was.
Of course many who love smoke would tell you this is what was needed... That everyone just see what it's already capable off. IMHO the change needed in smoke is a philosophic one. From a 'we can do everything best why go anywhere else' attitude, to 'we can try to do everything as well as possible, but realize other tools may sometimes be better, so here is an XML file which referernces your media'.
That would a game changer, and we've yet to see that.
