Increasing the number of dissatisfactory choices is not really a
substitute for a good solution.  Only when it becomes obvious that a
good solution is impossible and the available choices are comparably
dissatisfactory, can one justify shifting the responsibility to the
taste of the user.

But I'd not call that solving a problem.  It is just giving in to the
inevitable at one point.
