Ok, hate to be a jerk about it, but for crying out loud can we kill this
bloody pro/con OLC thing? Those who like it use it and work with it; it's
not stock but just about. Those who dont will have to put up with us

And really, it doesnt matter which way you go with it. Remember the prime
law of coding and administrating: "If thy answer doth work, UTILIZE IT."
