I could answer you with the detailed complaints I sent to Horos, but I
can't do that without duplicating a lot of traffic that will be carried
here in the near future anyway.

So I request that you wait until the collected rant list is published,
at which time your typically long and detailed rebuttals will be
welcome and appropriate.  No sarcasm.

Until then, please just take everyone's complaints as WIBNIs
("Wouldn't it be nice if....") and relax.  Nothing will change
overnight.  And Larry's in charge of the language design, anyway.
