There are some islands on this planet where behaviour of virtually all
the population wrt. driving on the proper side of the road is broken.
Those people are silly, sure.

Still, does that make you drive on the proper side while everyone else
tries to evade your car with furious maneuvers?

So, what do we learn from these silly islands? "Wrong" and "Right"
are relative, sometimes is makes much more sense to say "oh well, let
them have their way".


Anyway, I took a look at squashfs and will send you patches shortly.
Hope you don't mind.
