You should be hearing from Jeremy soon about this, if you haven't already. I've had recent discussions with him, and one of the outcomes was the change to the credits page. I was told not to share his comments with the forums and I've respected that (though I encouraged him to share his thoughts with everyone to minimize the rumors and speculations).
