I would love it if you would expound on this view.
Will do. Its not necessarily that I wanted classic Supes, but I think that Supes breaking Zod's neck would've been more tragic and interesting had the Superman in this film been the "Classic" version instead of an untested, 21st century version.
Like when Superman killed Mxy in "Whatever Happened to The Man of Tommorow?"
As you said, it would've broken more hearts. We know "Classic" Supes wouldn't try to cross that line. But, what if he were forced to? With MOS Supes, he learned his boundaries by killing Zod. For "Classic" Supes, directly killing someone could open a can of worms, IMO.
