It's not necessarily complex or complicated. It is just less simple than  
making the file control better, which would already be a huge improvement  
over what we have today.

Yeah, I suppose. I just wish we would do these things in smaller more  
incremental steps. Up to this point very little UI experimentation has  
been done with the file control. I think it would be nice if that  
experimentation settled first before we start thinking about how to  
control the particulars.
