Maybe so. On the other hand, the oddest tasks can prove to be difficult to program. Or so they tell me.

I still remember meeting with the engineering team for InDesign with a list of “little things” we absolutely had to have, only to be told by the engineers about this or that tiny feature that “that’s too hard.” As a user, I have no idea what is difficult or easy, of course. I just know what I want!

And, to be fair, most of that is in ID.
