If it isn't broken, don't fix it.

I like my applications to have the same look-and-feel.  I like
them to use the same shortcut keys for the same functions, etc..
Unfortunately, kmail and konquerer just aren't there yet, and
even though GTK has a "style guide", no one is very religious
about following it.  Reminds me a lot of a UI person I used to
know who prototyped all her UI stuff in Visual BASIC, and then
expected us to be able to implement things like modal dialogues
in HTML, so that browser-based access to the device resembled
a Windows application.  She totally refused to be "constrained
by HTML" during the design process, even though that was what
we had to deploy on.  Made it a real pain in the ass: everyone
who has to deal with UI code was effectively painting pixels
with an 8 foot paint brush.
