For example, the iPhone/iPod Out function requires the video Digital/Analog converter circuitry to be integrated into the actual snap-in adapter, which will naturally take some time to develop, test, and release."
In their defense, that part of the original post you quoted was added later via an edit; except for the first, generic "changes being complex" sentence, it wasn't there when the other comments were left.
