Agreed.  What's the point of all the pretty eye candy if you're stuck
with something you don't like?  But knowing Apple, they probably think
letting customers customize the interface (hmm, interesting commonality
of word roots there, isn't it?) would "dilute Apple's brand identity" or
some such marketing bullpuckey.
