The problem with modes is that they are traps that cause a stream
of queries. "Why didn't this work ?" "You had it in the wrong mode"
"I forgot/How was I supposed to know/I didn't understand what it did".

So if there is some way of avoiding having a mode and just have
things work well all the time, it's far better for everybody.

At the moment you've seen a problem that can be worked around
at some cost for your situation, but I'm wondering how common
that will be. Your workaround doesn't work for my situation,
with a dimmer display with a blacker black point.
An alternative conclusion is that the Spyder 3 simply isn't
a good instrument for measuring low light levels,
and so shouldn't be used with certain displays.

But I'm open to ways of improving how the Spyder 3 works, without
making it unusable.
