Thats much nicer, as it doesn't force anyone to use the federated 
structure if they don't want to (I can't see why you wouldn't, but 
choice is good...), and it's much, much clearer than /ipf for people not 
as familiar with the code.

(I've seen this elsewhere, especially in some of hte docs patches, and 
was meaning to bring it up...)
