Ok, again.
It wasn't a decision. It was a test.

I was going to ask you all what you thought about using ids in the future,
but this had nothing to do with it.

Again: I don't want to impose anything.
It was a stupid *test*.

I could have added a DEBUG:AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA to the page, but it seemed a

Now, since it seems you want to decide this, what do you think?

Can the user id be better?
