quantitative metathesis

I wish to know what the purpose of quantitative metathesis. It seems to me a superfluous complication of the third declension.

Greek Prose Composition, by F. G. Allinson

Francis Greenleaf's Greek Prose Composition, originally published by Allyn and Bacon, has been recently reprinted by both Adamant Media Corporation and Kessinger Publishing. If I am not mistaken, the last edition was the 3rd edition, revised (1895?). If that is the case, would anyone know whether the reprints offered by the above publishing houses are of the latest edition and not some earlier edition? Thank you.
