You hit the nail on the head. I also don't file bugs for mutt or emacs,
because they're usually not bugs, but rather design choices that suit
the needs of other people better than they suit mine. I didn't post my
little list as a "you need to fix this because it's broke", because I
don't really care if it works for me or not. I have a file manager that
I like and use. Rather, I was answering Olivier's question re: why not
use xffm with the reasons why I don't use it. I felt it would be better
to give a list of the reasons why I don't like it rather than a simple
"I don't like it."

Sorry for the confusion, nothing to see here :-)
