Every extra bit of complication makes the library harder to work with. It
really irks me when I try to use a library which seems to be making me jump
through unneccessary hoops. The same goes for just about anything with an
interface. My toaster oven has a timer but no lever you can just press if
you want toast and you already have the doneness set. Pisses me off. I think
it comes from being an engineer. Of course, maybe you can afford to alienate
that market segment... ;-)
