Frank,

Of course I do look at other people's functions and thankful for it; however,
I am not an academic and working for corporation means I have keep some things
away from our competitors, whether I like it or not.
If I cannot keep certain business logic away from prying eyes, then I cannot
use Splus for any proprietray strategies or any external apps. That will be a
major pain.
