That mistake is far too easy to make IMHO. I wrote a little macro for MSVC
to check for all lines that contain PLR_ and PRF_ on the same line. I'm sure
a grep and pipe construct in unix could do the same. There was some junk to
wade through, but I found three problems in my code after running that a few
months ago.
