That's a fair call, Shamir's secret sharing is pleasantly simple to use and understand.

Read the paper a while ago now but the scheme is still all fundamentally built on SSS, the auth, error checking and privacy layers are on top, so it's not a complete rework of what currently exists, more just some additions. Quite sure people have written some (perhaps all?) of these extras already in concert with regular secret sharing.
