It is actually correct. However, it is explained in the most  
confusing way possible. In particular, it is explained in the manner  
that it is actually evaluated in the code, rather than in the manner  
that anyone other than a firewall admin would think about it.

There's *got* to be a way to explain what these directives do that  
won't leave almost everybody confused. I get confused every time I  
read these, and have to re-read them several times to figure out if  
they are correct.

I will be *SO* glad when these directives finally go away.

You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.
