The suggestion was that Microsoft has stolen the body to use for its own 
dastardly purposes.  That is, since no one actually uses 42 (except in 
advanced infinite improbability algorithms), M$ might be using it for 
WINS replication.

I have *no* evidence that this is actually being done.  I have been too
burried in other floob to put boxes on a wire and see.  It was suggested
by one of our security folk, and I was just wondering if anyone knew. 

Sorry to have raised a panic.  It's safe to put away the silver bullets 
now.  (Well, maybe not...)
