The Board has already acknowledged this when we made the desktop spin 
the default.  We cited pretty much every point you made; both proposals 
that were brought to the table (one by Spot and one by myself) 
explicitly mentioned all those points).

I think we should bring back codeina so we'd have something to do other 
than keep answering the same questions over and over in different ways...
