I see your point here. We're all going to have our own customizations, of course but the fact that Salvatore took his time -- which is precious to the project -- to go through and abandon stale patches and his effort was met with applause and congratulations says something to me. It says that, as a project, we want this. If I'm speaking out of turn, please speak up and let me know. I personally don't enjoy customizing my own view more than I have to. I see it as kind of an annoyance. I'd rather not have to and be free to focus on other project issues.
