I've put this on a high priority list, unfortunately it's a software change and is in a big upcoming release that addresses A LOT of the biggest issues users are complaining about. Unfortunately that release is quite a ways off right now.
I will keep relaying the concern to the appropriate people over at the network as it keeps being raised so that they know it's something that users want sooner rather than later.
Right now the issue is if they pull those updates out of the future release and on an incremental one they will have to pull people/resources off and it will delay the current release they're working on by some amount, so it's a matter of if delaying the current release some is worth getting this fix out a little earlier. i know how some of you feel, which is why I keep relaying the concern, just wanted to offer a little background on the process and why it's not quite as much of an 'easy fix' as it sounds.
