    Consider the posibility that I might be talking about the general case
    here. And if there are two people with the PMS card thats the general
    case 8)

    It never breaks anything for anyone as a module, only compiled in. Which
    despite your moans about 'factual' things is a fact.

    probing devices, unsafe probing devices only as modules, or anything goes)
