Oh crap, not this again.  This has been discussed over and over and over
and over, and, yes, over again.  I promise you nobody here is interested
in hearing about this *AGAIN*.  The horse is dead, and covered with post
mortum bruising.  Please don't kick it anymore.

I have no idea where the 'reference discussion' is.  Search the
archives,  you'll find tons of crap about this.
