Right, these sorts of issues with this tool (and ubuntu-tweak) are
what power user developers should be working on improving. Maybe
myunity or ubuntu-tweak is not the way to go, but what we do have
/today/ is a known-broken tool

As long as your list of criticisms is, there's nothing in the myunity
that can cause the havoc of ccsm, and I'd feel much better if instead
if we concentrated on fixing the actual problems (like the
aforementioned lack of a11y adjustment in the existing tools) than
shipping ccsm.
