Oddly enough, I have often found the opposite. The more polished
the user-interface, the more questionable the stability of the
software (Windows NT, Netscape, MS Office, et al. as opposed to:
Unix, MVS, et al). As always, your mileage might vary ;)

If we are going to lean to this, I think we should keep the old
messages, and have a prompt at the beginning--how much more
space can the original text messages take? Is it enough to make
this sort of thing disadvantageous?
