I don't want to get into that in this thread.  It is too close to a
discussion of what is the best way to do things.  I certainly don't
want to challenge people by asking "why".

I want people to feel free to describe things they have seen, or which
they do, without feeling criticised.  "sounds quite complicated"
sounds like a criticism to me.  And I don't want the thread derailed.

I would prefer to focus on "what".

(Also, I feel that I personally have a pretty good handle on the
advantages and disadvantages of various approaches and I can usually
see why people have done things, even things that I think are a bad
idea.  So I don't need help with that.)
