Well, I don't think I deserve such thanks just for stating my thrust in this group, but I can get how it must feel good to hear in the sea of complaints that you're probably used to receive ;-) It's the same story for any group, for what it's worth. People easily notice what's wrong, and consider all the goodness as granted. That's how humans are made, and how we progresses and avoids regression.

My gut tells me we're running out of such tradeoffs in JS at speed of light recently. There must be another way. And if such way exists, we shall find it.
