Hmm. Maybe I should get people's reaction to my ideas, then, before I 
put any more time into them.

I'm thinking of a complete overhaul, which would move a lot of 
functionality into (more useful) context-sensitive menus. Settings that 
can be or must be set manually would largely be found in dialog boxes. 
Those of you who are thinking this sounds a lot like the GIMP are right.

I plan to do a full, detailed write-up of my ideas. My hope is not that 
they will be implemented intact, but rather that some of the better 
parts will find their way into the interface over the next several 
versions. If everyone hates them, I'll go back to the drawing board.

If elections are just something where you go in, you push a button,
and go home, then it doesn't make much difference which button you push.
