Okay, I don't have any new information, other than that I've actually (finally) learned to use the "saved searches" feature. I update the searches every few days.
As frustrating as this (IMO ridiculous) change is, it's made me think more in terms of exactly what I am, and am not, looking for. I have saved searches for regulators (minus single-stage, minus voltage regs, minus a bunch of other garbage) from a long list of manufacturers. The same for solenoids, metering valves, and some other crap.
In fact, has anybody else (actually, I'm sure of a couple of you that have) noticed how many people mis-spell "swagelok"? It opens up a small new world of products.
Anyway, it's an evolving experience. And I added several new search terms (+ and -) to my regulator search today.
