Ah, great.

As I understand, this sounds okay by me, though I'll add that, offhand, 
I don't know why they couldn't default=on if that's useful. There 
doesn't seem to be much breakage, it seems it would be okay to turn them 
off where they're a problem if they are otherwise useful for most cases.

Ah, didn't know akademy was mixed up in the troubles, thanks. As I was 
trying to say, that "yell" was meant as a "hey, this won't work, let's 
fix this"... friendly ribbing, not anger. Hopefully that was, or is now,
