Why not use the Official Revver Wordpress Plugin?

Almost a year after I released this plugin, Revver has released a Wordpress plugin of their own. What's the difference and which one should you choose?

My plugin is MUCH simpler and cleaner for popping a video into a blog post using the video ID. The Official Plugin is much more bloated and does a lot more with organizing your video library from inside the Wordpress admin, allowing visitors to post video responses as comments, seeing earnings without going to, etc. You can think of my plugin as the "light" version for people that don't want to mess with all that other crap. I sure don't.
