it actually causes me to wonder what has happened to humans that we need to have these messages all over the place though. could it be that so many of the 'needs' of users has been fabricated? (fabricated here meaning invented in such a way to make it seem as if there is so much unhappiness and so that it allows something that was really really good to be changed to be not so good) > And as a general, pie-in-the-sky, comment: > > It seems that indexed mode editing is cumbersome, confusing, and > limited.
