I never said or even suggested that anything was "trivial." You must
have imagined that. Also, I am an aerospace engineer, not a computer
scientist, software engineer, or programmer per se.

Since when is no one is allowed to suggest a potential improvement to
a product unless they are willing to implement it themselves? Imagine
what the world would be like if such a rule applied to all products.
