Oh I know! I was playing devils advocate more then anything else :), Ive had 
my share of forms api, developed with it, was one of the first to find where 
its limits lie (node forms w taxonomy cannot be altered properly) and I even 
build a Fapi builder for KDE. 

Having said that, stuff like form alter. Theming of forms and file forms is 
not what I call fun to do. Not saying that it used to be better or simpler. 
Just saying that this stuff has hardly improved. 

But lets leave this issue in rest. Too much has been said about Fapi being 
good or not. My point of view is clear. As is most of other peoples. I am not 
a fan of working with it.
