This change is useful and I request that it be kept in.
But it is *also* bogus. So I request that it be made conditional
There was once a news post by some prominent FreeBSD person - I don't
remember who, and I can't find the link anymore, but it was a list of
ten things that a winning operating system would have. One of those
things was a "big switch" that, when turned on, made the thing totally
standards-compliant. I like that idea. I don't really like the idea of
the switch being permanently in the "on" position, though.
