Interesting. Take Command *was* (or is) powerful but IMO it's no match
for zsh. I happily invested a lot of time investigating zsh and its
options because I found many things immediately appealing.

I am with Bart on this one. Many so-called "defaults" in all sorts of
software, including zsh, are far removed from what I find reasonable (or
at least work-flow enhancing). The whole point of "optionising" features
is to give people choice. But with that comes of course a learning curve
and some responsibility for the choices one makes.
