What is more important is that it takes the code further from devs. I like to see the code I use, and be able to do anything about it if necessary. Not to see a spec and three different implementation, of which two use random hacks which I can't do anything about unless I start to implement PM-specific anti-hacks in my code. -- Best regards, Michał Górny
