On a new engine will be a completely new game. And you can start working on that.

It's not about being a programmer or a sales manager or whoever you may be. It is about having an attitude of a consumer or that of a contributor.

A contributor is driven by the desire to improve things, which you declare, and not by anything else. The way of the contributor is to see a small item that can be improved, learn the minimal amount of stuff that's needed to improve it, and contribute the improvement to the community. Learning is indeed the most difficult part in this process - yet the effort you spend on learning is merely a manifestation of your desire to have the item improved, which is, as i mentioned, is what makes you a contributor. The desire manifests itself through investment of resources, such as time. Once experience is accumulated, the effort required for learning indeed starts to decrease, but not very substantially. The desire to rewrite the game on the new engine, however, rapidly fades away (:
