I already do...
If the ranking mechanism FB used was any good, I wouldn't have installed FB Purity to override it...
...just showing everything, in the order it arrives?
I get sick of the permanent BST brigade here in the UK... if they want to live on European time, they should bleeping well move to Europe!
My second biggest annoyance with the keyboard this...

At which point the industry will present their "new improved" model (at twice the cost, naturally)
"plus our allies are buying a whole bunch"
And in the meantime we in the UK won't have an aircraft carrier worth the name for the best part of a decade...

Read this part again: "For commercial-level code... fair enough" - I agree with you entirely on that score.
I wasn't talking about that though - the whole point of demos WAS to use as many tricks as possible, to show off to your mates (and the wider world) for a few weeks, until the next bare-metal coder found a way to do something that blew yours away...

"possible malign foreign actors"
That'll be the NSA then?
So you leave your doors unlocked and open when you go out do you?
I assume nobody in your neighbourhood would even consider walking in and stealing all your shiny things...
So if I were to gun down the entire US population - just to make defend myself from the possibility of being shot next time I'm there - is that OK?
(Yes... I know it's a stupid comment...)
