Gosh, I'm sorry.  If it said so in The Rolling Stone, of course it's gotta be
true.  :-)

Sigh.  Intelligence is not directly proportional to knowledge of Unix, or
Linux, or ADA, or PDP-11 assembly language, or whatever your particular
religion happens to be.  If you have a thing about looking down at the common
user, perhaps you can work it off somewhere else.

Apart from that observation, in the words of Inspector Clouseau, "That's WHAT
I SAID".  My point was not that building a portable interface is impossible,
but that someone has to put some hard work into it.

Good point.

I have a question on this, but it belongs in a new thread on another day.
