15 My point is that the startup, sanity-checking, and initialization code
16 has to go *SOMEWHERE*. Where do you propose moving it to? This
17 discussion reminds me of an ethnic joke. A bunch of workers had dug out
18 a hole for the basement and foundations where a new house was to be
19 built. The workers ask their foreman what they should do with the pile
20 of dirt they had from digging out the hole for the new house. Their
21 foreman, who is ____________ tells them to go dig another hole in the
22 ground and throw the dirt in there. <G>
