"Simply adding another setting" is never just "simple" nor in many cases the correct decision. Pretty soon you will have hundreds of flags, which nobody fully understands, which ...

Well, then I'm asking myself why there are just three entry modes: Textbook, Algebraic, RPN (not to mention the separate CAS mode).
Why not having just one mode (RPN, of course!) which works as expected?

I think TW is talking about non-critical settings. Entry mode (also number format, angle format, etc) is probably a bit more important than this visual thing (without RPN in the options maybe this forum wouldn't exist? and we were still playing with our HP50gs)
