Sure - so I obviously will leave implementation discussion to UX. If you think
that this could accomplish the same thing in a better way way, of course you're
the expert :)

Just to be abundantly clear, I'm not asking for a pet bug to be *implemented*,
I'm happy to see the discussion and at least acknowledging that the status quo
makes it hard for users who want quick and efficient access to quite a few
effects (hard relative to how easy it is to apply other styles such as double
underline, bold, etc...)

So if your proposal makes sense in light of this (this mostly goes over my
head), then why not just mark as NEW and let it sit as NEW until a volunteer
decides to take it on (which might be never or might be next week :) )

:-D As so many other things, the "how did it happen this way" is hard to
determine :)
