	Sigh - people are busy; in particular Markus - whose baby this is has
just put in a great chunk of bug-fixing work for 3.6.2 / 3.6.3 to
improve lots of conditional formatting corner-cases.

	I expect that high-priority bug work chews time he could spend on
discussing changes to features.

	Please don't feel unwelcome if you don't get a quick response. It is
-far- easier to ask questions and find problems than it is to consider
and fix them; and some problems are more urgent than others.

	So - Markus is the authority there, since he's the one doing the
hacking :-) last I checked he implemented it based on advice from the
UX-advise list [ if it is a UI issue, please follow up only on that list
instead of cross-posting ].

	Agreed, it's some great work.

	So - I imagine the discussion is just slow going; I havn't followed it
in detail, perhaps there is some UX input needed, please be patient :-)

	All the best,
