Who is "the vast majority of users"? New users? I don't think so... I
think the vast majority of users are the users that upgraded from
previous version (11.04 and 11.10), where the intellihide was the
default behaviour. Why this couldn't be left as an option? Only 117
lines of code for "Dodge windows" and "Dodge Active Window" (and it
was good code).
Because of the burden of maintaining the code that enables that. There
are a bunch of components that do that, and it's better to focus
developer time into projects that affect the vast majority of users.
I think the "This confuse new users. Let's remove it" attitude is not
respectful with the long time users. Does that make sense?
