Yeah, shoot the messenger! Who want to be disturbed in his dreams.

I told the cost of a user interface that is unexpected and I went to
some length explaining that.

You seem to have thrown that explanation in Emacs big Recycle Bin of
refuted ideas. I am glad it can't be deleted directly in free software
development ;-)

I am sure there is substans in what I wrote about.

I do not want any immediate reaction of course. It is food for thought.
Normally I do not write these essays. Part of the reason is simply that
I have found that communication often fails here when it comes to this
kind of issues. Now I was frustrated and did not care about that.
However I could have written nearly the same thing (minus the
frustration of course) at another occasion if I had time and could find
energy for it.
