    IMHO, not by default and not unless it's configurable.  Too big a
    change from current behaviour, and potential seems great for
    inheritance confusion.  Unless we want to stress-test GNATS.. ;->

    I'm going to add a couple of things to this to-day and then submit
    it as a patch to the current FAQ.html.  Votes, please; if approved,
    I'll start posting it to c.i.w.s.u.

    Likewise, I'm going to try to get this complete to-day or to-morrow.

    I'll add this to the FAQ to-day.  I don't remember seeing this
    discussion (although I'm about four dozen messages behind); can
    someone send me a message-ID or two so I can include details?  Ta.

    Maybe Ralf's on holiday..  I didn't see if this was included in Dean's
    [?] unsignedness patch; if not, I'll submit this to-day myself.

    Maybe CGI buffering? (e.g., $| in Perl?)
