I sympathize with this sentiment. As long as we're wishing - with the 
existing hardware (4 buttons), Line6 could implement bank selection method 
in software such as:
1. press button #1 to enter patch select mode (blinkenlight flashing)
2. enter your patch selection by pressing any of the other three buttons 
(eight possible combinations including none pressed)
3. press button #1 again to confirm patch selection and abandon bank 
mode (blink off)
And so on and so forth for each of the 4 buttons. In other words, the 
button press is your bank select (4 banks), the next presses your patch 
select (8 each) is 32 possible patches.

(Now if only there were also a way to get the patches in there in the 

Only requires software implementation, and users comfortable in binary 
numbering. (The alternative: keep only customers comfortable with bending 
over in public:-)

Sorry, couldn't help it....
All the best,
