   So how do we go about persuading _those_ people that such
high-effort, low-return UI designs are a bad thing? Who should be in
this particular conversation, so that we don't put you in the position
of fending off people on both sides?

   (When I speak of "low return", I mean low return in terms of
usability -- you don't make user interfaces more usable by adding more
transparency, more rounded corners, and drop shadows, particularly on
restricted-size interfaces.)
