Don't be so serious.  :-)  I'm just saying that the votes
are in for 3.0.23 and the default is not going to change.
I don't remember a single technical point in your mails
that would convince me otherwise.  If there are bugs, then
we fix them so the fact that you found one or two bugs is
not a reason to revert the change.

Your other point was that you thought it would confused
users.  My counter point is that admins can simply turn it
off if they like.  Besides the fact that your belief
is based on speculation.  You have presented no evidence
that people are actually confused by the extra tab.

So if you have additional points to make, then I'm all
ears.  But continued comments like "I still think we should
revert the change to the default" doesn't strengthen your

You should know me well enough by now that I'm not dogmatic
about my own position if you can provide a better technical
basis.  But so far, you haven't done that.  Jeremy agreed.
The fact that Guenther didn't realize the 'msdfs root' had
been changed strengthens my position and not yours because
obviously the extra tab was not too confusing. :-)

cheers, jerry
