No, what Alan did was proving bad taste, or bad mood, or whatever. This
disucssion simply does not belong here and has nothig to do with the
now-off-topic disucssion about binary incompatibility.

As such, what Alan did was a cheap trick to try to draw attention away
from the real problem. He didn't succeed, of course and I only accurse him
of a temporary bad mood which I can certainly live with ;)
