Of course you could, in just the same way that you can choose your own
personal stylesheet. The problem today is that there is nothing in
between writing a full-blown GreaseMonkey style of script, and
changing stylesheets to get some CSS. There's lots of space in

Thanks. I'm well aware that you can hack anything if you put your mind
to it. And you would prefer to use such a hack rather than Dmitri's
