Good, then I'm not alone :-)

In my opinion, one of the best things about emacs is that people contribute new
functions or features all of the time.  However, "THE" best thing is that the 
rest of
us can either  use them or disable them.

Fringes seem to fly in the face of the greatest strengths of emacs in that you
are forced to have them whether you like them or not.  Toolbars and fringes
are nice things to have for beginners but once you get use to the tool it is
best to take off those training wheels and become truly efficient.

Sorry for venting... Thanks for listening.  I feel better already :-)
