I think the D100 was the perfect size. Unfortunately, mine was co-opted by my girlfriend a long time ago, so - anticipating the D2x - I gave it to her. But it's small enough to fit in a briefcase so you can take it to work. If you want a vertical release, you can add one, etc. And, unlike the D2's, it fits in a multitude of camera bags.
Personally, I think you should sue Harris for product defamation. I wonder if his malpractice covers that?
