My English :-)). Actually it was meant like you explained. For these
users we sometimes leave the old UI for the old function in the old
place if we improve a function of our software.

Those people perform certain tasks in an efficient way and would loose
their efficiency otherwise.

It sounds as though we are pretty much on the same page.  What can we do
to make it easier (within reason) to serve these users, and w/o doing
damage to Squeak?
