Jim Kingdon was being lazy and did not care that such a change causes
more problems than it solved.  He didn't even seem care to learn why
things were the way they were in the first place.  He apparently didn't
even try to figure out some better approach to the problem.  He simply
unilaterally and selfishly made a change that has had consequences for
every CVS user since, whether they know it or not.

Do you always flatten off the ends of your screwdriver handles so that
you can hammer nails with them, even though that flat spot will cause
you blisters when you next try to drive a few screws?

You are not me Noel.  Do not EVER pretend to think you know what I know
or how I think.  Do not ever second guess me.
