God, you're smart, Tom.  At least in the "finding the head of the nail
so you can whack it with a hammer" sense. ;-)

Now, since these are communities we're talking about, not simply a
minor twirk, there are a bunch of other things that are associated
with something like this difference in definition of "delete".

I conclude that this thread is a waste of time; Lennart should go
customize his .emacs, and then everybody should get to work on (1)
implementing cascading custom themes and (2) providing a UI that (a)
allows Windows folks to have Windowsy behavior, Mac folks to have "for
the rest of us" behavior, and *nix folks to have "for the sentient"
behavior, (b) an (optional) subcommunity thematic for eg Vista
cripples vs XP wonks and (c) a "new-in-version-X.Y" theme advertised
on the splish-screed.

And all easily accessible and well-advertised.
