Absolutely not.
It is the name used. The class itself is 'MAudit'. and the launcher is

For those who didn't get it, 'ĂȘtre maudit' in French means something like
'to be damned'.

Maybe I can setup something at work and publish the results on my account in mm...

Lucky you ! I found it easier in OSS than in a company because people are
usually more responsible. Many people in a company are developpers because
it's quite well  payed and there is no real problem to find a job and don't
give a s* about what they are doing and don't have the cense of ownership in
their work.

It is nonetheless impossible to somewhat 'threaten' people because you can't
fired people like this in France. Firing people for not respecting coding
guidelines will not be interpreted as 'faute grave' (ie: professional
mistake) by the law and the employee can sue the company for $ or ask to
reintegrate the company.

You have to be very careful when hiring someone. It is easier to fire
someone because he did not dress correctly rather than because he f* up
something or does nothing.
