Sorry about my previous generic message. :)
Solve should not be returning
RootOfs of degree two equations by default; it would be much nicer if it returned the more elegant radical form. Also, we are of the opinion that the
Explicit option should not also require the presence of the
AllSolutions option to get every solution to appear in radical form.
