Subject Re: [PATCH] All properties available as filters
Date Mon, 17 Jul 2000 12:56:17 GMT




Personally, I'd give this a -1.  If it does get included, put a VERY big
warning in the docs.

Which implies creating a lot of additional filters you've never
thought of - I doubt anybody would have @line.separator@ in her files
but ...

If we'd decide on including this, we should put a *strong* warning in
the documentation.
