That was not what I was expecting as a user. So:

a) or I have a very rare ideas, as user or

b) you maybe are not right

I guess that it's option a). I don't have any other reference than
myself and I don't know what users expect or if what they expect
is correct or not correct.

Maybe a users survey would give as more information, but as always if
all users vote that PI number is 3.1 and not 3.141592... would not be
changed :-)

Thanks for the input,
