Either @#$%in' or screwin' up.

I am defiantly against making our comment vents look like a Beatle
Baily comic strip baloon text.

The UFS message is clearly to go, but removing the comments would be
insane.

(oh and as for corporate source tree's worrying about this, they
indeed do for the people who buy source licenses from them, there
are groups of people who scan the tree snapshots they release and
grep out profanity etc., one cool one that got through was that the
architecture in question had a common set of 3 instruction sequences
that were easier to code if macro'ized, they alway came in the
sequence A; A; A; B; B; B;, they did #define BLOW A; A; A; and
#define JOB B; B; B;, they put the defines in two different header
files, and the committee overlooked the particular assembler files
these were used in, the joke got past the committee as intended ;-)
