For *me* to do this takes more effort than if you'd simply told me in 
the first place. Now multiply that by the number of people that might 
want that information, factor in that you already know the information 
and that people in general are lazy... and yeah. And that doesn't even 
consider that I could only reverse engineer the "what" of your changes, 
but could only guess at the "how".

I'm not sufficiently interested to pursue this further.

Heh, now *there's* something that probably should not be there :-).

(Strange, my sig_rotate script seems to be picking the same signature 
twice... second time it's happened in like a week.)

Did you hear about the pig that makes footwear for cows? He's a real moo 
shoe pork.
