Getting OT here, but that's the reason I prefer plain TeX to LaTeX.

I usually find that I spend longer tweaking some other person's style
that almost-but-not-quite does what  want than I would do writing a
TeX macro from scratch to do exactly what I want. But that's probably
just because I started with TeX a long time ago, when LaTeX wasn't
remotely usable for real projects, and simply got into the habit of
solving my own problems. I certainly know TeX far better than I know

You are right: some kind of interactive LaTeX style designer would be great.
