	I used to be one of those people: at Ork
	we only had the time and staff to upgrade
	when we installed new hardware, and so
	happily leapfrogged from SunOS 3.5 to 4.1.3
	and again to 5.5.1

	We did have to worry about options changing
	over time, but we didn't have to worry about
	running an old appliation X with a new
	library Y (;-))

	To make them happy, write good diagnostics
	for mis-used options.
