Usage note: as in 'she was not too pleased with the results'. In many contexts this construction is entirely idiomatic and should pass without notice (it wasn't too long ago that deregulation was being hailed as the savior of the savings and loan industry; it was not too bright of them to build in an area where rock slides occur; he ended up not too good).
