I seem to have a deja vu today, the same discussion on every mailing
list. So I am going to say it here, too: Users are clients, even in open
source projects (I also work for free in another OSS project even though
I like to make money with my daytime job). So, if a user is a client,
why not make life easier for him? And why is it so hard to regognise the
benefit of not having to use a - however short - sed command for an
everyday use case?

Thanks again, Denys, for implementing this.
