I don't mean to detract from Greg's truly excellent e-mail by replying
to just part of it, but I know that this is the case for me—I still
use the Classic theme, restyled with my own CSS and Javascript, and
all of the interwiki links are right where they were before.  Vector
doesn't affect me personally, but I see its impact on people around me
all day.

For the love of all that is virtuous, please at least read everything
this man says.
