Yes, I'm pretty sure I did. Thomas also seems to refer to it...

That would be much better. if "l" (lower case ell) would continue to 
anything I wouldn't have to change anything.

Of course I've been busy all night fixing code, but apart from a couple
of hand-crafted modules I haven't checked anything in yet. I will check
it in on a branch later tonight, and then I'll either forget about the 
or merge it, depending on the resolution of this.
