I just want some thought to go into things, that's all. There has to
be a balance between doing things impulsively and rashly and having
things get caught up in committee meetings. You're on the quick
side, so people will naturally say "hey, slow down here" to reduce
the risk of rash action. This isn't to say that your ideas aren't
good -- it's just prudent to make sure they are good. The fact that
you like your own ideas isn't good enough; I liked my patch, but upon
further examination by others it isn't the best solution.
GSR has a nice point about differentiating "in menu access" vs
"direct quick access".
Go ahead and commit; it's fine by me, anyway. :-)
