I think you raise a valid point. There does seem to be a tendency in the community to assume that a certain amount of inconvenience is to be expected. The reasons vary, but the underlying tendency remains.

I see a disconnect here. Some of us (John in particular) insist that GC 
is not a system for professionals, only for personal finance.
Yet, I always hear about accounting rules, and the way it should be done 
by the book. If GC is really for the personal user, I don't understand 
how we can survive without undo/redo, and multi-select. *every* piece of 
software out there has these types of features, and they're invaluable.
