I am officially removing myself from this conversation.

I have a patch that I want in, and I put a lot of work into this. I 
don't want to take a step back NOW and start arguing this part of it 
again, we've been over this road over and over and over again, and what 
we end up with is a lot of talk and no code.

Code freeze is in 34 days.

To those of you who can do it better: Fine. Do it better. Otherwise, 
help get this patch in, because otherwise Drupal will continue with its 
current administrative interface, which only a few people like.

I won't be pulled in 12 different directions. I picked a direction with 
this, and I went with it. I like to think I have a decent feeling for UI 
and usability. I've created several of them over the course of my 
career, and the customers usually like how I organize and flow. Maybe 
I'm self-deluded, maybe not, but I do no, agreement on this is nowhere 
to be found.

I certainly know where *I* expect to find things, and I've laid out my 
reasoning (and I imagine I'll do it again and again and again) and I'm 
done. I'm ok with tweaking and a little bit here and there, but if you 
want to do it totally differently, put up. Otherwise, help out.
