	Sure; which is IMHO not ideal, but certainly "easy to use" :-) It very
much depends what people want really. If they want a hyper-simple UI to
do simple stuff, that's fine, if code shows up that is maintainable &
works, we'll include it of course.

	Having said that: no-one is going to kill all our enterprise-users in
one shot by mandating that thing for everyone :-) Personally, I'd prefer
to see something that exposes more of our power features (like styles),
while making that really compelling & usable, so we could use the same
(better) UI for all users [ but of course I'm not a UI designer; perhaps
that just can't work ].

	Naturally on smaller / portable device form factors, we'll need a
smaller UI (as/when we have a UI there), perhaps this would be useful
there; just some random thoughts :-)
