....another blow for the concept of perfection - a la the asses thing in 
previous posts. You covered every base, only to conclude that you are 
hosed anyway.

     If you can't make it perfect, just make it simple and dumb, and 
keep deleting everything that can't be agreed upon.  You can then focus 
on the practices manual and examples to keep people safe, rather than 
the perfection of the code.

    If dangerous COP was coded around, only committers would be able to 
figure it out anyway. [sung to the tune of - if guns were outlawed...]
