In my experience once something has been changed and doesn't work correctly, it's about as much work to go back to the way it formerly was as to fix it properly. I'm just thinking about Friends, which, for me, doesn't matter a lot, but for a great many people is truly important. For them I think Friends needs to work or it causes frustration and exodus. Wait... wouldn't Exodust be a good name for some kind of cleaning aid?
Back to Friends. Did it break when the stealth properties were added? Seems like it, as I recall. Now that it's borked (although the varying ways it is borked over time must indicate that the code is being worked on) is it easier to keep on or is there some bizarreness to the stealthiness that makes it nigh impossible to fix? I don't know, but I think that if it were possible to put it back as it was I'd just un-friend almost everyone and consider that my own desire for hidden status comes below the genuine needs of (probably) 90% of SL residents.
