@cketti Glad to see it's not just GNOME people with this perspective. ;)

@mjog I bet for most developers it's an opinion formed by suffering. I did a quick count and arrived at way over 100 options for @k9mail. The pain is real 😧

@cketti Too true – add a feature and you double the code paths to check, add a feature that interacts with another and that's quadruple the number to check. Good reason to just do the right thing (or at least the best possible thing) in the first place.

@cketti I keep coming back looking for this post to send this link to people asking for more options :-).
