We can sacrifice *some* compatibility for *some* long-term goals. We do it
all the time, even Microsoft. It's all about tradeoffs.

In this case, I'd like to see a list of specific routers, sites etc that
triggered the implementation of fakepath in Opera and IE. I'd like to
crosscheck with our Bugzilla to understand why we haven't felt the need to
do this in Firefox.

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
