Who else doesn't want auto-select when opening a card?

This makes me crazy. I almost never want the first field selected when I go to a card, 
particularly on mobile. And god forbid the first field is a list field, where the first line is 
hilited whenever the stack resumes focus, even if the hilitedline was 0.

The workaround is tedious: on preOpenCard, set traversalOn to false, send a message to turn it 
back on after the card is displayed, include a handler that will catch the message and do the deed.

I want a property or setting that lets me turn off this default behavior. It's annoying and 
disruptive, and has been there since day one.
