Correctly, though apparently for the wrong reason.  I know get what
you're trying to do, despite you consistently refusing to present
a use case.

I'm wondering whether you did, though.  Aahz's later point that you
need to work on your presentation skills is not something you should
dismiss out of hand as you appear to.  Your original post read very
much like "here's some code, please tell me I'm brilliant and should
carry on."  Whether or not you are brilliant, that doesn't go down
well.  When you're trying to generate interest in something, actively
generating disinterest like that isn't going to help.
