That's what I often do. As a rule of thumb, if there's more than one  
way to achieve a goal, there's too much functionality.

Not exactly mainstream, I know. By profession I'm a mechanical  
designer and there the cost of redundant stuff is much higher. But  
even for software, the cost of redundant functionality is above zero.
