So don't do it that way? ;-)  crm lets you edit one constraint at a time,
just like pcs.

You don't actually, that's only required in more complex cases.

I've never experienced that.  Please could you give some specific

Here are the equivalents for comparison (I think - not tested):

    location r1-with-r2 resource1 inf: resource2
    order r1-before-r2 mandatory: resource1 resource2

So yeah, the pcs syntax is mildly simpler, but it's hardly an
earth-shattering differences, and perhaps it hides some other details,
like the nature and threshold of the constraint?
