I'd settle for just a pause control for pee breaks.

Some things stay the same
Could someone please explain why, on both sides of the Atlantic, supporters respond to what often are very detailed Win8 criticisms in almost the exact same manner? ... i.e. by saying the critic...
- Has never tried Win8.
- Is a Luddite.
- Is technically incompetent.
- Should stop whining about the start menu
- Is a moron. (Brits are generally too polite to use this)...
I've tried to remain neutral in the Win8 "wars", but when I see this happen in comment section after comment section on both sides of the pond, I find it hard not to conclude they're working from the same Microsoft "talking points". Very seldom do I see criticisms countered on a point by point basis, as one might expect.
I also don't understand the British press' apparent willingness to believe, on the basis of precious little evidence, that Microsoft has "seen the light", and is about to do a Win8 U-turn. I believe I read the same interviews, and I just don't see what supports that conclusion..

You might want to be careful what you wish for ...
Having worked with the voles, I suspect you'd find the code "a dog's breakfast".
You could just face that eternal dilemma, "Do I patch this mess, or rewrite it?" "If I rewrite it, just where do I stop?".
Then there's the question of how to propagate your fixes to others (should you wish to).
