I never said no. I only explained the changes that happened since 2.2
and explained why I think that the current UI is better. That doesn't
mean that it cannot be improved further. It only means that I am
unwilling to revert the whole thing.

Sorry, but UI design is not about like or dislike. All I want is that
someone comes up with a UI proposal and shows us how it is better than
the current one. At least show us that you actually tried to consider
the problems and looked for solutions.

You can't just say that the old user interface was fine and that we
should revert to it. That would mean ignoring the many complaints that
led to this change.
