Yeah I really have been bamboozled by all the people that
are defending apple from scorned editors by saying:
"Use FCPX, or just keep using FCP"
As if the third option of moving to say, PP5.5 is
just out of the question.

As many have said before - and I include myself -
This is really NOT a knee jerk "urgent" jump.

I've been at peace with a possible switch since fcp7, which
I felt wasn't worthy of more than a .5 upgrade.

To me, it was just dependent on what apple's next move was.
They delivered a product that can't open any legacy projects
(even a limited option would have been acceptable ie base edl)
at the same time EOL'ed FC7, leaving us no option.

Honestly, my argument for moving to PP has been that it's closer
to FCP7 - than FCPX is. I can fiddle my way through Premiere
and it's not the giant paradigm shift that fcpx is.
Now for some this may be outrageous, but I dare any FCPX
proponents to point to any glaring deficiencies that PP has to FCPx.

Interestingly, Adobe pulled off quite a trojan horse with lots of
us, using after effects daily and having premiere waiting in
the wings for just this occasion... I guess the package pricing
will pay off for them!
