Since this requires more red stone to make, I think it should be a little more powerful than regular wire
Seems to me the effect would be the tradeoff for the cost. But I do see your point.
And for the range for the on- state...maybe everything within 3 blocks?
Red stone wire is about 10 I think so maybe 20 for this?
Maybe it can carry a charge for 40 blocks?
What I was originally going to use this for was a flying machine engine but now I'm seeing a lot more possible uses
One person from a very old thread was complaining because he tried to light a 50 block radius with a couple torches on the edges.

Living trees and leaves are generally more resistant to burning up than wooden planks in real life because they have water in them.
No, it's nerfed to stop total destruction. Again, it's back to the griefers argument.
This argument has come full circle. To sum everything up, I just fail to see why making materials that naturally generated (like wood and leaves) more fire resistant to prevent excessive damage while increasing the spread of fire on user-created objects (wool, wooden planks) to allow easy burning like in the OP is so bad.

Some people at the beggining of the game dont want to go mining deep for redstone. Also, why would you waste it for TNT when you can make an awesome contraption in your house?
So 2/3 people agree so far?. Good enough for me.
Easy to say, harder to do. No one, not even you, is perfect. Forest fires in the game do happen, it's not simply a matter of "don't start one" or "put it out". When I first started in beta 1.3, I accidentally lit a single leaf block on fire. That single leaf block burned down a good 30 meter radius of trees, because the fire spread faster than I could punch.
If it should be increased in the first place, it should be increased on only certain materials, like wooden planks and wool (not leaves and wood blocks since it would cause excessive forest fires).
