Troy & Ejner ... I know that and I think I was agreeing with you guys at
some point no ? I also understand the design of wanting to keep a UI clean
and clear and do not show thousand of params at the same time which most
people would not use on every day basis and not other complicated the stuff
for them as well.
Thats also part of design Troy :) and that where Sergey want to take time to
think of, and I think its a good thing
you angry people !
