I do not believe this.  If this was true then there would be
full of bug reports in this mailing list.

I might have time but I do not think that what I suggested to
Morten Bo Johansen is worth writing documentation.
It is almost trivial, IMHO.

I did not deny your method at all and it might be the best way
(although I can not tell if it is true or not) but, at least 
for me, it is not an easy method.  It seems to me that you claim
everyone should follow your method and if so you should explain
the reason much more explicitly (not only saying you dislike it).
