Yes, and I should drive an automatic so I don't have to worry
about which gear I should be in.  In fact, I should employ
a chauffeur, so I don't have to worry about driving at all.
But I /enjoy/ driving, and I /enjoy/ using my gearbox; in fact,
I enjoy taking full responsibility for everything I do with
my car (short of servicing it, which I leave to the experts).
And I feel exactly the same about TeX.  So, "thanks but no
thanks" : canned solutions may be fine for some, perhaps even
for most; but for some of us, finding our own solutions is a
far far far more rewarding way of life.
