Absolutely! I didn't mean we shouldn't discuss this on the list. I 
wanted to draw attention on the fact that at some point it's easier to 
track down issues when they are "isolated" in the bug tracker! :) For 
instance, we?ve covered more ground than just the initial issue of that 
post and there is a risk of loosing good ideas. Again, I agree : no 
harm! :))

Just checked in the bug tracker. There is a "user interface" section 
(that has always been there I think) but no "usability". Wonder if I got 
it correctly and whether there should be a new option here. Maybe Craig 
Ringer has the answer?
