And for those who flamed me for flaming Steve (in case it wasn't
obvious) this is exactly why I did it. I am allergic to
self-proclaimed contributors who have little to contribute except
telling all the existing developers that what they're doing is wrong
and expecting everyone to bow down to them and make the changes they
want to work around their buggy code/files/compilers/whatever without
any regard for how it affects everyone else.
