Don't worry, my brain is not the problem. (Although, for me, it will
take long, as I work on Windows all day long. But that's not an
argument - for Mac users, the new situation might be an improvement for
the very same reason.)

The problem as I see it is that the proposed solution does a poor job
at solving the problem, for the reasons described in the part that you
