Ha! I had to laugh out loud at this one Andrew, mainly because IT'S
TRUE! I was asked to please remove -w and -T from the she-bang line,
and take out "use strict" because when people have to modify my code,
they are getting warnings and errors. They were complaining that they
have to remove them themselves and why didn't I just stop using them??

I must be STUPID!

Thanks for the laugh I needed one today..
