I have another take on this: Apparently the solids content of the 
Eastwood paint was increased, or the amount of solvent/vehicle was 
reduced.  This would fit with an EPA mandated reformulation of the paint 
to reduce VOC emissions.  I suspect that it will not be long before 
conventional solvent lacquers, enamels, etc are history, and all that 
will be available will be water based formulas.
