    This post by Aubrey Norris, though she's not a Dev, is exactly what I'm talking about. Builds a wheat "wash" farm, from the sounds of it. It does not work as intended because Bedrock's trap-door mechanics do not work like Java mechanics. FOR NO GOOD REASON, this is "not a bug, it's a Platform Specific Feature (PSF)!"

    How much of this PSF business would vanish if Devs had to periodically swap and play the Minecraft platform they were not working on? Ignoring the "deep, technical Redstone" stuff, just simple, basic game mechanics.

    "We play both versions in both Redmond and Stockholm! Parity issues are frustrating, but we're working hard on getting them squared away"

    This is great news! The gameplay experience between both should really be in sync, and it sounds as if my request is in practice.
