FWIW, sometimes I want that, as you and David do, and sometimes I don't.  It 
just depends on what I'm trying to do.  IMHO there's not an always-right answer 
in the non-column-zero case.

Did you see Artur's post [1] giving an example of how the non-dumb behavior can 
make sense in the non-column-zero case?  I found it pretty persuasive.  
(Whereas in column zero, I *always* want the "dumb" behavior, 100% of the time 
-- and it seems that at least is a point of agreement for most people here.)
