Didn't notice yesterday.. Very valid point, indeed. I guess that even the higher profile products, which employed un-officially-documented features / tricks could be affected by the "democoding style" as Marko liked to point out. Meaning more or less "patching back and forth until it works on my particular machine because I don't know how and why it actually works" :-)
