i remember mhit well.

generally, most folks thought the user interface had gone wrong
if you needed to handle such large lists in a menu. so there was
a mild cultural prejudice against such things.

however, i needed it for a couple of projects, including circuit layout
software. you can imagine selecting chips from such a menu
and so on.
