I'm not against it per se. After all, compromise is an art which I hold in
high esteem (being exceptionally bad at it). I'd just like to point out
that this decision would (philopsophically) mark a point when Hansl and
Gretl started diverging from one another. This may not be a bad thing in
itself, Hansl being more oriented to power users and Gretl to casual
users. The only thing, in time we may have several "favour/favor",
"centre/center" etc. situations. Are we ok with this?
