Why not patterns?

I see that in the code that you use the mouse to select, click things etc.  Is there any reason why you did not use the UIAutomation Patterns on a control?

White development started off with using Patterns which has distinct advantages because the tests would be less intrusive when they are running. But the problem is that the patterns are not consistent across all kinds of application and sometimes don't do the thinks which actual click does. I don't recollect exactly what the problems were though.
