Whoah... I never said he *would* change anything without resorting to this
group or make a change simply for change's sake.  I just said rather than
being considered a 'bug' as such, which it seems most people would consider
it, it should be considered a design flaw rather than something that would
just be fixed, as it seemed that most people were considering it.  And as
far as ho to correct it, it seemed that the way that I've seen that the code
operates, i.e. from top down through the script, an addition to the tag
rather than to change it so that this one instance operates in a different
way than the whole engine would be a better fix.
