That's comparing apples and twenty-sided dice.  In our case, you CAN do

"More formal accounting system"?  Sounds too much like a registry to me.
No, thank you!

And I hardly qualify such statements coming from you anyway, to be frank.
You'd just as soon load everything under root anyway and leave it at that.

I don't want my system built either way you've described, and I don't think
I'm alone in my statements and conviction.

Someone (besides Greg) feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
