This is a good point, although I still would like a lot more granularity 
in my decision making.  The ability to set an override *once*, will save 
me hundreds of hours a year in listmeister time.

At the same time, I agree the current interface is clunky, fugly, and 
slower that gardenias blossoming under heavy doses of fertilizer. But I 
love it just the same.

Interestingly, I would place it at #2 on my list, as getting #1 will 
by definition allow me to enjoy #2, but without #1, #2 doesnt matter.

"Never belong to any party, always oppose privileged classes and public
plunderers, never lack sympathy with the poor, always remain devoted to
the public welfare, never be satisfied with merely printing news, always
be drastically independent, never be afraid to attack wrong, whether by
predatory plutocracy or predatory poverty."
