Given how many times I've clarified what I'm actually concerned about I 
can only believe at this point that you're intentionally misrepresenting 
my argument. Bad form.

I'm not questioning their existence, their importance, or their right to 
have an interface that meets their needs. I'm questioning what *the 
defaults* should be.

You may also note in my most recent message to Patrick that I think the 
new status toolbar is not going to actually meet the needs of the 
Circumvention folk, and in fact may make things worse for them.

But in any case ...

Ok, great. Good luck with that.

Again, you're misrepresenting my argument entirely; and again, bad form.

I will now retire to the cheap seats with my bucket of popcorn and watch 
the show. :)
