Well, OK, but can you be more specific?  "Fix the UI"
isn't exactly a great guidepost for indicating code
corrections. ;-)

I also make a distinction between *speed*, the time
it takes for a task to complete, and *responsiveness*,
the time it takes for a system to respond to a user's
input, regardless of whether a task is complete or not.
A slow system may be tolerable if the user feels he's
still in control.

There's also the question as to what "bloat" is in this
context.  Useless functionality?  If so, indicate it
specifically, then the developers can chop it out.

As for "large MP3 collections"....how large, specifically?
Hundreds of files?  Thousands?  Hundreds of thousands?
Presumably one can index these MP3s by author, genre, and
other such easily enough -- though I'm not sure that that
would be complete enough for me personally.
