Your sarcasm is really pissing me off because I did take the time to
review your bug report before replying with my analysis and two
constructive suggestions for you. Let me recall them to you:

	Just write a `.toprc` to enforce your favorite options; problem
	solved. And if you really feel strongly about the new interface
	not matching your definition of "progress" you should bring your
	suggestions upstream.

And what did you do with this "valuable input"? Conveniently ignored it
so you could go on ranting and trying to rally people to your "cause".
Guess what? That's not how change happens in open source circles, that's
just a way to piss people off and make them ignore your future requests.

So if you're serious about change start coding already and send pull
requests upstream.
