Lightroom 6.14 and Catalina--A Suggestion

There must be many very frustrated photographers like me who lament Apple’s move to Catalina and the consequent banishing of all 32 bit apps. 

The irony for me is that my most prized application, Lightroom 6.14, is already a 64 bit app.  However, because Lr 6.14 is apparently inseparably connected with a 32 bit installer and uninstaller, it cannot be used in OS 10.15 without dire consequences. 


If Vue Scan can reverse engineer its 32 bit software to a new 64 bit version, enabling me to use my Minolta slide scanner with future Mac OSs, I wonder why Adobe cannot do the same thing for Lr 6.14 users like me (and probably many others) who do not want to commit to a subscription, with the wholly unacceptable consequence of losing the develop module if I later decide to drop the monthly payments of an upgrade.  


I would be willing to pay a reasonable fee to Adobe if that is what it would take to “upgrade” Lr 6.14 to make it compatible with Catalina and other future Mac operating systems.
