Well unfortunately we users are ultimately at the mercy of you
developers, so all we can do is *hope* that you are good at the UI
decisions, since we have to live with them....

That is an excellent idea! I, as a user, got onto this developer list
some time ago for some forgotten reason. But it has been fascinating
to watch you discuss the evolving 2.4. There seem to be some who are
interested in what we poor schmucks out here in Userland have to say,
while others seem to take the attitude of "Let them eat cake".  Free
software is a wondrous thing.
