Seriously, we do care that the system is easy to use for both admins and end users and part of how we do that is by minimizing the number of tunable options because they add to confusion and increase the difficulty to manage the system- look at certain other $expensive RDBMS's if you're unsure about that. Far better is to work out the *correct* solution to a given problem rather than punt'ing on it and asking the (almost uniformly under-informed user) to tell us what to do. And, yes, while we're interested in our user's input, we do not add new configuration variables because one user asked us to. Thanks, Stephen
