the verbosity produced (or induced) by this topic
indicates to me that there is lots of importance
involved.  either the importance is recognized and
codified (even if awkwardly), or the importance is
glossed over to re-emerge as bug reports.

if you would characterize your observations as a
bug-report, i think it is reasonable and responsible
to describe to you the mechanisms you can use to
achieve the desired behavior.  if you would, on the
other hand, characterize your observations as advice
on how to design things, pointers to past discussion
would also be appropriate.  i see these kinds of
responses, so it seems to me people are acting well.

i think you have good ideas but it seems you do not
accept that after a certain point, goodness is
measured in many more ways than simply those that
are based on the ideal.  (this is fortunate for
people who grow more ugly w/ age, like me. ;-)
lthough it is a lot to ask, perhaps when the next
issue comes along, could you involve yourself early
on, so that what good advice you have to share has
the best prospects of finding traction?
