There are some underlying issues that are a matter of user preference
which couldn't possibly be automated - I hope something comes down the
pike to allow those to be configured easily instead of constantly making
it hard and hard to configure them as has been the current direction.
I use a trackball and want to configure one of the buttons as
draglock (so I don't need three hands to drag things :-).
People with multiple monitors need to be able to say if they
want separate desktops, or one big virtual desktop (and if
a big virtual one, how are the monitors physically arranged).
