Amateur Brain Surgeon's analysis of Eucharistic Prayer II

Commenting on Fr John Hunwicke's otherwise unexceptional article, "How to enjoy Eucharistic Prayer II" (Fr Hunwicke's Mutual Enrichment, April 22, 2015), Raider Fan (A.K.A. Amateur Brain Surgeon) writes in The Nesciencent Nepenthene (April 22, 2015):
It would be comforting to learn that late in life, Annibale Bugnini, had a moment like Alec Guinness had in the movie, Bridge on the River Kwai:

What can I say? The man has a twisted sense of humor. [Laughing ... ] Unfortunately, so do I.

It is funny, in a 'black comedy' sort of way.

On a serious note, if any person in a high place had such an 'experience', I imagine it would have been Pope Paul VI. I think of "Voluntati Obsequens" & "Jubilate Deo", 1974 as evidence to start with.

But on a more serious note, what do traditionalists (e.g. SSPX?, FSSP?, SSPV?, et al.) really want said or done (bottom line?) re: Archbishop Annibale Bugnini, the Consilium, the Novus Ordo Missae (Missal of Paul VI), the Papacy and Magisterium, etc? So many voices. The incessant criticism I read on the Web (of varying quality, veracity and merit I think) is, IMHO, truly something to behold, and at times it is overwhelming, and frightening -- complaints, concerns and problems seemingly with remedy. Quo Vadis?

Important note: The above is NOT directed at Pertinacious Papist, nor is it an accusation or criticism of anything he has said or done. Thanks.
