The event editor sucks

Is it only me that thinks that the event editor is crippled big time?

Just arranged a song today where I had to use a lot of pitch/volume/controller events and wasted most of the time fighting with the event editor and its annoyances. Events don't shift when notes are moved, and it is difficult to set values precisely with that clumsy "bar graph" type used for the event values. Why it doesn't implement the same spline-type UI that is available for controller automation in the playlist? That should make things so simple! The event values propagating past the pattern length when one tries to draw lines using the right mouse button also plays against a smooth workflow. It would also be so simple to delete events using the browser with a right click but, of course, that menu item doesn't exist there where it should logically be.
