If I bought something described as a 'kit' and found that some (not even
'most') of the components were pre-soldered, I would return the kit and
expect a full refund. It's not as descrbed. A 'kit' means I get to build it.

Yes, and we had the same arguments when PCBs came in (replcing chassis
and tagstrip wiring). Things change (not always for the better, but I
I really don't see what all the fuss is about doing SMD assembly by hand.
