It didn't suffer.  And I can support just posting it to get it out of 
the way, and cleaning it up later.

I've used something like that too.  One of the characters who fought the 
Super-Wizard came out of one.  And you made your random number generator

south-of-the-border schizophrenic delusions...  But never mind, I've
found me the ideal job.  I'm going to run for President!
