Yes, this is why I have been hesitant to get into a more complete
redesign.  The search space increases dramatically and reaching a
final result that everyone likes will be a much more lengthy process.

I do like to "refreshing" of the IP[y]: design that has been done with
the new font and the corresponding banner.  Are other people OK with
this?  I also think changing the colors to match the color scheme we
