Not arguing with that, but: what would you suggest instead?  I'm agin
the idea of having small essays in tracebacks...


  People think I'm a nice guy, and the fact is that I'm a scheming,
  conniving bastard who doesn't care for any hurt feelings or lost
  hours of work if it just results in what I consider to be a better
