Comment (by stippi):

 Your reasoning makes sense that one should optimize for the common use-
 case. There are two problems with this:
  * The uncommon use-case is not simply unoptimized, but it becomes
 impossible to perform. However, I can't remember the last time when I've
 actually performed it or needed to perform it. So this problem is void.
  * The bigger issue is that your reasoning can be applied to the Haiku
 user interface in general. So I would prefer this to be changed
 everywhere, like all BControls, window buttons, everywhere, rather than in
 one application introducing inconsistency.
