Thanks for the feedback on this feature. We made changes here because of quite a number of feedback items requesting we make the profile switcher. Having done so, we now get some feedback like yours that the old way was preferable. We have a scenario on the backlog that we think might be a good solution, but we are going to do continued customer experiments on it. At present, we think we might give people the choice of installing as a separate app vs using the profile switcher.
Unfortunately, I'm not exactly sure when we will be able to get that experiment running.
