Oh, of course. I'll just read the source! A well-written document
concealing the implementation for those of us who don't care couldn't possibly
help in using it. *sigh*
BTW, I'm referring to user's guides here.
Oh, and don't assume I'm not a developer. I code all day, and my projects
are well-documented. Sorry, but it's not that hard to keep information
accurate. I'm tired of the cop-outs.

dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead." -- RFC 1925
