Now you see that I don't even know my own app! :)

But I know that we once had it different than now, and I had to change
it to what is is now due to very insisting user requests.

If I would change it back as it was before, some other users would start
to complain again, and I would have to change it again and again and
again ...

I don't remember when and who exactly insisted on that change, but I
remember that I was against the change and got voted down.

So, I think I leave it the way it is now, even though we both agree it
isn't the best way.
