Generally I would agree too, but you can't always follow that rule. My
experience is that the hardware itself is seldom more than 99%
accurate (often much less), and writing software for it is more
plumbing than science.

Having said that, I agree that the changed match code is better than
the previous one (you just had to remember that you could do it that
way first :-).
