Yeah, I'm learning that :P

However — a small, pedantic part of me (not that small, actually)
still wants to do these things, and just insist that the tool-creators
(which sometimes includes myself) write "better" tools, rather than
insisting that those working with those tools (also includes me)
restrict how they can express information.

Of course, I pay for that attitude occasionally, when a system gets
used and abused in ways I didn't predict.
