Comment 1 for bug 615029

That's not a bad idea. It's a feature I'd definitely use, as I tend to be kinda verbose. ;-)

However, I think I'd get annoyed if it *always* popped up the taskeditor on entry, since I usually only need to enter more text sometimes... half the time or less I'd guess.

What would you think if instead, it was just a keyboard shortcut? E.g. use 'ctrl-enter' instead of just 'enter' to cause it to pop up? Then it'd be there for everyone by default, but wouldn't "get in the way". People like us with workflows that want to elaborate can use the shortcut, but it won't impact those who tend towards brevity.

One reason I think preference options should be avoided when possible is that it makes testing a lot harder. E.g., imagine if you and I were the only gtg users who prefer it this way; then no one but us would have it turned on, and so no one else is really testing our particular configuration. So bugs could show up that only you and I can reproduce, and it'd be hard to figure out, "Oh, it's because we have 'auto-launch-task-editor' enabled." Another reason to avoid preference options is because they tend to accumulate, to the point that the preferences panel gets overwhelming with way too many choices.
