    Got that right. I think I switched to slrn in 1996 because of a feature
    I needed. At this point I vaguely recall I was using trn before that,
    and who knows before that. Hmmm, interesting marks on the walls of
    this rut, don't you think?

    Agreed. This may also be why it's not used universally. Still, if it's
    going to be battle-tested, _someone_ has got to be running it. And
    those that run it have to have it configured to do the intended job.
