The context menus are just as slow as the new buttons -- both ways require two
mouse clicks to delete a row/column.

Those four buttons were incredibly useful. I would rather be able to "insert
before" only (in one click) than have all options buried under another button.

I agree fewer buttons is better by default. However, wouldn't another option be
to add the old buttons back to the "Visible Buttons" menu, so that people could
add/remove them depending on their preference?

I also think Gerry's idea of having three buttons that remember the most
recently used feature is a good solution.
