My take on this is: let's try it (after 2.2), and see what happens. In

Ah, the "it has millions of users, so it can not be bad" argument.

That argument is flawed in some many ways, that it is not even funny to poke
holes at it.   One thing I can guarantee you that Visual Studio did not get
millions of users because of the shitty error pad.

You know what else has millions of users?   Notepad.

Anyone can get away at sucking in some areas, as long as the benefits of
using the tool outweigh the problems.  We now have a clear solution for
solving a problem that absolutely sucks.
