My use cases are wordpress.com & wordpress-mu.  A major UI annoyance for 
me was the split between the left-aligned & right-aligned menus; so in 
that sense I'm deeply hoping wpmu will be able to make the multi-site 
options fit into the left-nav.

For your use case, what "doesn't feel right"?  Does it just feel 
"different," or are there concrete things that you can point to and 
reason out why they're wrong?

If you're a long-term user, it's normal to be annoyed by change, even if 
that change be beneficial long-term.  Muscle-memory is hard to rewrite ;)

But if there were specifics you could discuss, I'm sure that'd help the 
UI guys.
