    You are right, I don't understand the assumptions leading to that

    I know the drill, and I obviously already got hit on the head. ;-)

    This is a seriously defensive attitude, given that the thread was
    hypothetical from the start.

    If I put on rose-colored glasses and try really hard, I can almost
    interpret this as an invitation to share code.
