In this thread at the moment, I see mostly people having (personal
preference) problems with how i would solve this bug.

while they aren't less important, what I would rather see in this thread
is alternative solutions, or how the problem with A can be solved if it

even if both A and B are regarded as bad, I'd even prefer people to say
that B is the lesser evil.

complaining on how B is not good for you, doesn't get us anywhere with
this bug.

So please, give alternative solutions or state how A is perfectly viable.
