I will have to agree with you on this one. Though it may have made the
user happier if you had expanded a little bit on that, I've found /dev/null
almost as useful of a backup device as my ol' floppy tape drive when I ran
Linux. It was so extremely unreliable, that I could write a tar on a freshly
formatted tape, and let /dev/random decide the percentage of data I'd get back
out of it.
