I must admit, if that little thing which has caused so many problems isn't fixed in the next major release, then, in my opinion, Khaled is asking for flame wars *shrugs*
I mean, I would have still not noticed them had they not been brought up on these Forums, and it doesn't bother me in the slightest if it's never removed/fixed again, but I'm just coming from a Forum point of view.
I think many people have been extremely unfair towards the team this time round - from ONE version not being up to everyone's expectations? Pft. Not learning from your mistakes is another story though....
