An emotional argument again. What's "strange" about it?

You have a choice of:

1) believe me that the current solution is fine

2) get down and try to understand the damn thing, and then come up

I know that 2) takes time and energy, and not a lot of people are
interested enough to go through it, but why on earth do you think it
will _ever_ be easier than now.
