Le Havre: A new 9

I first played Le Havre a couple of years ago at a convention when it first appeared in the US. I was so annoyed by the many dubious physical and graphical design choices that I was unable to enjoy the game at all. I have since re-learned the game (thanks, Phil!), making a huge mental effort to ignore the board and the chits, and found it quite enjoyable. I have since played two more 2p games, and have increased my rating to a 9. This places it "on the shelf" right next to At the Gates of Loyang, although I don't think I would enjoy it with 4 or 5 because of the chaos factor (as with Agricola).

The tough part is that, if I bought a copy, I'd want to replace the board and chits with my own components. That's a lot to pay ($45 to $50) for a deck of cards (with typos) and a few bits of wood and cardboard discs--plus having to buy extra stuff.
