Subject Re: Setting <IfDefine> parameters from config file
Date Wed, 02 Jun 1999 06:38:58 GMT
Do I get to say "I told you so" here? 

(For those who've forgotten, I'm referring to my opinion that we shouldn't
have ever introduced this <If> crud, and should have told people to use a
preprocessor like M4, because this is exactly what they're intended to
support... inching bit by bit towards a full config language sucks.)
