You keep repeating that, and it's wrong.
See my response to another of your mails
today that repeats the same thing.

> I don't like that to begin with

You don't have to like it.  You don't have
to use it in your code.  It's an optional

A different question is whether you have to
use some code that uses it.  Ideally users
would have a _general_ way of expressing an
individual preference such as yours.  That's
different from _removing_ the possibility of
providing such behavior.

Nonsense.  Boogeyman?

Show da codez if you really have something to
say there.

Did you read what I wrote?  I detailed just
such an option.

Did anyone suggest giving the default value twice
to the same function?  I wonder if you read the
message you're replying to.
