Somebody told my wife the other day that she could work as a freelance
editor.  Editing what, I asked.  Editing university student's papers,
the person said.  It pays alright.  People do it, but both my wife and
I agree it's completely wrong, so she's not even considering that.

Maybe this wasn't as good of an analogy as I had initially thought, but
just because people use Makefiles to repackage Jars and do it
incorrectly, or in a way that makes them lose provided information,
doesn't mean that we have to account for them.  In my mind this is
similar to supporting broken HTML, when there are clearly defined and
well-known standards.

Of course, this is only my opinion, and I don't expect everyone to
agree - how boring would that be! :)
