Not necessarily true.  While we recommend you use PulledPork, after some more thought and discussion inside the VRT we've realized this may not be the only way that people can feasibly deploy our rulesets.  So we are looking at a way to "level the playing field", as it were, with regard to the needs for PulledPork.  

As of right this second, we recommend you use it, and we always will for rule management.  But your cry of help has been heard to standarize the ruleset into a way that is accessible and useable by all.
