I understand your point ... it's just that it seems like a Band-Aidâ„¢ on
a much larger problem, and I'd rather solve the much larger problem.  But
then again, I wrote replyfilter which is also a Band-Aidâ„¢ on a much

of changing that leaves me unsettled, but I recognize that's not really
a rational argument.  What do others think?
