Yes, that truly describes the basic nature of TR.  I think it even 
says this in the manual, but I don't remember.  The reason I think 
many people think TR is 'harder' to use is because they have to 
unlearn CT.  Me, I never used CT before getting TR, and I caught on 
very quickly.  The other thing that is probably daunting to new TR 
users is the sheer number of configurable options.  TR in its basic 
form is quite simple, but if you say, turn right to Appendix A of the 
manual, with all the different logcfg.dat commands, you can 
become overwhelmed.
