I actually quite like that, most things autocancel, and you can't wavedash, but it actually does seem good so far, and don't mind the lack of manual canceling at all.
On another note, I'm picking up Pichu, seriously this time.
I miss Insane Carzy Guy.
Speaking of Melee, I finally got around to trying out Project: M. I gotta say, I'm impressed with the game's quality. The gameplay is great, the characters have alternate costumes, the weaker characters like Link and Bowser in Brawl are more viable, ... I'm amazed.
From what I've played I think I'll main as Dr. Mario in Project M.
