No, I don't want the single-click mode removed, because it's obvious a lot of 
people love it dearly.  I'm just adding my experiences to the pile.

Although I will say that this discussion has been sort of "me, me, me" in that 
we're all talking about why the feature is good or bad.

If we're to switch away from the current default there needs to be a good 
reason (and something like 51% understand double-click better doesn't cut 
it. ;)
