In my opinion, about your parenthesized points:
(1) is false, (2) is false, (3) is a feature, and (4) i've yet to see
any better proposals about how to do it.
can't we keep these _SUBJECTIVE_ options out of this ?
i mean, all we have so far verifed is that:
(1) some people still support the "old" way.
(2) some people still want the "sysV" way.
greg's (1) point might be false to you -- but it's not to me.
greg's (3) point might be a feature to you -- but it's not to me.
i do not see how we can't support both methods in a simple and
clean manner. please re-think about my earlier proposal.
