Back when I was a software developer, we had a saying: "It's hard to
make things fool proof because fools are so ingenious!" Beta testers
usually do things too "normally" to find the really good bugs!

I haven't had much time to test with version 7, but the new features
look very impressive and very well implemented. I remember software
developers evaluating items on a wish list by ranking them on three
scales: 1) difficulty to implement, 2) desirability, and 3) how well it
fits with the goals for the product.

Regardless of implementation difficulty, I think WG has done a great job
with categories 2 and 3 - lots of very desirable updates that fit
extremely well within the product we already loved. It demonstrates
that they use their own product and listen to their customers.
