It's a mysterious world. First there's the question of how it
happened that this bit of OP wandered into C#. Then there's
the question of why I included that "<g>". And then the question
"golly, you finally concede and include the "<g>" explicitly
and it doesn't help..." Questions everywhere.

There was some concern in the Delphi world over what would
happen now that AH had been hit by a bus, um I mean hired
by MS. But Delphi's doing just fine (possibly bad news
for whatshisname, job-security-wise.)
