Seriously Arfrever, drop the rhetoric here, and go fix the profile 
compatibility issue.  Everytime you bring up dot's in use, you ignore 
compatibility, and every damn time it gets brought up I keep having 
to repeat this.  It's not productive and this has repeated for at 
least a year now.

People who want this need to sort the compat issue rather than 
sticking their heads in the sand.
