ken, speak for yourself. i am completely unreasonable about it. i stopped 
supporting pre-POSIX "sprintf" results in BIND as of about 1995. it was 
controversial then. it is not controversial now.

if presented with the glorious rise of win32 and cocoa and told that the unix 
apps people had remained compatible with 20-year-old systems, yoda would say, 
"that... is why you fail."
