Don't get me started with spatial - they came, they dumped it, they left ;)

You will not fall out of sync in short order, especially if you work

came in and added spatial apparently have it working for their needs and
havn't been around doing anything with it for some time.

Feel free to add some javadoc too! Any javadoc ...
