Comment on attachment 575809 [details] [diff] [review] Much less Review of attachment 575809 [details] [diff] [review]: ----------------------------------------------------------------- The verbose approach is something you may be proud for the next 10 years, but then someone could make you sad doing a code cleanup. Since I don't want you to be sad, I'll accept this simpler approach :p
