That is quite disingenuous.  People usually start by saying the complete 
2.x UI is terrible and they prefer the 1.x UI.  Then Lindens ask about 
specifics, and the litany starts, of course, with "a small but 
high-profile set of these changes."  There are some really horrible UI 
decisions that almost everyone picks first, but that is not to say there 
there is actually anything good among the rest of the the UI changes.

Small changes cannot fix the 2.x UI.  You really have only two 
reasonable choices:  revert the look and feel back to 1.x or make the UI 
completely customizable.  Anything else is just delusion and wasted effort.
