This to me seems more likely to please more people.  Some people just 
can't stop fiddling, and might be vociferous if their favorite tweaks 
went away totally.  Move all of the rarely used fields to an "advanced" 
screen, and make that launch off of a button from the basic screen, and 
you'll satisfy the people who don't want to wade through a bunch of 
settings they never need, and the ones who want to change every little 

Of course, there were a few on that list that do need to go away 
entirely, as well.

I haven't smoked for 3 years, 2 months and 2 weeks, saving $5,286.77 and 
not smoking 35,245.16 cigarettes.
