/me notes that you dislike both existing interfaces and would prefer a
third. How likely is it that you will still like the new interface two
years down the road? How likely is it that everyone else will agree
In the end, a painful interface is still less painful than a choice of
several incompatible ones. I used to think different and have burned my
fingers often enough to learn the lesson. :)
