It seems like they are giving you the choice in this case. There's a new option in the Appearance Settings , which defaults to the current behaviour -- I expect that they'll want to change the default in some future release.
I think it's almost axiomatic that any significant UI changes will cause outrage in the short term (e.g. Windows 8, Slashdot Beta, any time Facebook changes anything, Xbox 360 dashboard, Netflix...). People hate change. As a developer, you can probably expect at least two weeks of negative feedback for any significant UI alteration -- but if you're not starting to see mixed to positive to responses once the initial shock dies down, then you may have to admit that you actually made things worse...
