That's too bad (and I'm in that boat, actually) but that doesn't change how difficult it would be to redo the UI or how likely it is that LWD would spend their time on this aspect of HLC vs. anything else they're doing (especially if those other things include a reasonable alternative).

Yeah, and you can't blame folks for working with the technology and limitations of the time. Backwards compatibility is a double-edged sword. :(
