I guess I have two immediate reactions to that. My first reaction is 
that, being a consultant making money from an open source project, I 
feel an obligation to contribute back to the project that helps me pay 
my mortgage and feed my kids.

My second reaction is that this will help. To simplify, simpler admin UI 
= more users = more customers = more chances to make money to pay 
mortgage/feed kids
