OK, this is bogus.  Hardware issues have nothing to do with user
interface.  Why are we creating a new interface when everyone and their
dog is going to be vastly more comfortable with an interface they
literally grew up with?  Just because that interface originated in
hardware limitations does not mean that it is inherently flawed, nor does
it give us license to arbitrarily change and cease to match what our
*user* expect.
