My reply was going to be a lot more rude but it's late so suffice to say
that rule #1 of porting or hacking applies here:
"If you're gonna play in the big sandbox, it's generally considered bad
form to kick down someone else's sandcastle to build your own."
In short, if you're coding within an existing project, try to keep with
style, even if it repulses you.
