        Very good points, to a new coder - or someone who wants to be one
- this may not seem like a trivial addition.

        Wouldn't that be more of a reason to put the option in there by
default then?  I personally think that the the code Peter wrote is good to
just throw in the distribution (well, sans dg script parts, etc) - it
works, it's easy, and the only thing missing is blocking things off with a
couple of #ifdef's and a define in the config.

        I'm not too worried about it myself actually though.  Just
curious.  :)
