If you want this new UI behavior, that's fine, and I could even deal with it
being the default desktop configuration, requiring me to turn it off
somewhere.

But just forcibly enabling it, by default, and giving me no visible
configuration setting to turn it off, anywhere, and forcing me to root
around with gconf-editor – this is just rude.

Or, perhaps all the missing UI configuration settings: this one, focus
autoraise, and others – perhaps there just wasn't enough time to add the UI
for these settings, and Gnome 3 replaced Gnome 2 before it was fully cooked.

Whatever the case may be, I just hope that the “we know best, so here's the
UI and you're going to like it, because we do, and you won't have any
alternatives” meme will not survive.
