Why, Lenovo?

As you may recall, I'm a satisfied owner of a Lenovo Thinkpad T400. My one pet peeve was (and still is) the reverse positions of the Ctrl and Fn keys on the keyboard. I've since been approached by 2 other Thinkpad owners who share the same frustration.

So imagine my delight when I heard that Lenovo is going to offer a BIOS update that will allow switching the 2 keys. And then I read the post to the bottom (highlights are mine):

We plan to offer this in all future ThinkPad models, including the over 10 models that we are currently planning. While we really regret that we were unable to use some of the great ideas that we received, such as a BIOS update for our current products or switching the Fn and Ctrl key caps, we will continue to keep these ideas in mind as we move forward. Thank you for your understanding!
What?! Why??? Don't thank me, because I'm not sure I'm understanding. Please Lenovo, let my Ctrl go!
