Hey David--

Sometimes you make it sound like we're *not* paying multi-hundreds to
multi-thousands of dollars for IDL.  Yearly even.

While I'm in the camp that roles their own user interface by hand
(when needed), I can totally understand and sympathize with the
frustration over OS favoritism that was described.
