One of the things that I *like* best about linux is that "it" is not
afraid to change for the better even if "it" risks a bit of breakage. The
day that linux can't break for a little while to make "itself" better is
the day that I switch to Microcruft (well, that is a bit extreme, maybe
to freeBSD).
