Image border, padding, and while you're at it Links;-) When you have to start relying on a 3rd party to keep their plugins up to date, just so you can have basic functionality (that had been around for years) then you start questioning how far out on the limb you want to go. But, WP is open source right? You could have someone start developing a "User Friendly" fork and the rest could go with the "Developer Version".
??"...pretty quiet and uneventful from a support perspective"?? Well, of course... the more functionality you drop out and push off onto a 3rd party plugin, the less that will be expected of you.
