Well the reason I asked for (another) show of hands is to verify whether I
am a lone dissenting voice. If I am I'll shut up (well I won't shut up,
dissenting voices make you stronger, but I'll agree that things should go
ahead despite my dissent) because while I may think this is unwise I can
hope that quick folly is sooner remedied than slow folly, and better still
I'd be happy to be proven wrong and if so I'd rather that happened sooner
rather than later.

I think the additions will give hackers more questions than answers. That
will not be to the long term benefit of real code.
