I think one of the reasons I really hate typing the file name in a
source code file is that I once used (and taught actually) modula2. In
modula2 you have to name your module the same as the file name. The
name generally appears in 3 places in the file.

This was an enormous pain and extremely aggravating. You couldn't just
copy a testcode.mod to testcode2.mod and compile it, you had to do a
search/replace for the damn file name. I _hated_ that. Having to do it
for function names as well would be pretty close to my idea of hell.

I refuse to have anything even remotely like this in Samba :-)

	Cheers, Tridge
