Walter, "ugly" and "unnatural" are not only highly subjective terms,
but also confrontational and seemingly absolutist. I don't have a
position in the technical debate, but the opposition has made cogent
technical arguments in favor of their approach and IIUC have even
tried to find a compromise accomodate your needs. In the debate about
debating style, they're winning. Please find a way to return the
discussion to technical issues.
