      Actually that is the exact answer that *I* want to hear.  Thing is, 
it's a moving target - what was true two years ago may be wrong now, so 
history and experience are not as important as knowing what real users are 
doing today.  This is the case for all aspects of the software.

      I have no complaint about the defaults, and I do not know what the 
majority of users expect of want.  My only concern is the volume of e-mail 
to THIS LIST from those who are clueless or lost.  The better the program 
fits the expectations of users, the less we hear about it here.
