More support = more better
Supporting HLDS is a must.
Supporting both HLDS and ReHLDS is fine.
Supporting only ReHLDS is not okay in most cases. The only exception when a ReHLDS-only plugin is acceptable, in my opinion, is when converting the plugin to regular HLDS is extremely difficult (for example, it requires advanced Orpheu code to substitute ReAPI).

So yes, more support = better. However, we require that regular HLDS is supported all the time, except when there is a very good reason why it can not be (easily) done.

In this case, the plugin made by Dexter is badly coded, hardcoded and has functionality issues. Please refer back to my original post. This is why this one was unapproved, not because it works with rehlds. If his plugin worked correctly and on top of that it worked for both HLDS and ReHLDS that would be a plus in my book, not a minus.

Lastly, yes, the plugin made by Jhob will only work by default in HLDS, but it should be possible to update the signatures and obtain ReHLDS compatibility. As such, I decided to keep the plugin that works correctly, is reasonably well coded, and works only in HLDS as opposed to the plugin that is horribly coded, and doesn't work correctly, but would run in both HLDS and ReHLDS (and fail to work correctly in both).

I hope this clarifies everything.

metamod modules are more convenient, there are plugins that do this task.
