Poor Pluto

Oh come on.
What's Pluto ever done to deserve being knocked off the planetary charts?
It wasn't hurting anyone, just quietly circling, minding its own business, not getting in Neptune's way. A slightly eccentric orbit can hardly be grounds for dismissal, surely, even in Australia.
How can it possibly harm anyone else, to let the poor old thing keep believing it's a planet?
I blame Xena.
Pluto's always been my favourite. We small, round outsiders have to stick up for each other.
