/ Paul Prescod <paul@prescod.net> was heard to say:
| I propose you document a convention for disambiguation and move on...

I'd be happy to do that. I think I tried to propose that. But someone said,
"no, that's not good enough, it must be illegal" and someone else said
"no, no convention is needed at all."

Around and around we go.

I'm about ready to stand on any middle ground at all, even if it means
getting my shoes wet.

What we need the folks who are adamant that it must be illegal to
relax a little and say "okay, it's not *illegal*, but can we document
it as really bad practice?" and the folks who say no convention is
needed to say "ok, it isn't necessary, but it doesn't do any harm to
conform to this notion of good practice."

Any takers?

                                        Be seeing you,
