I don't believe I said that it is unacceptable to me.  It was
mentioned specifically in minutes (and previously on the list IIRC) as
being the one thing that was kind of a problem for the state machine
parser Tab was proposing.  I am merely suggesting that it should be
possible to find a case or two where someone actually did that given
that we have representation from the big search engines - or it should
be taken off the table when considering the state machine version.

It's not even an argument for the state machine version - just that:
a) I think that particular objection isn't worth leaving on the table
while considering it b) It should be possible to get that data and
show that it is or isn't.
