Sorry Dan, but sarcastic/funny often doesn't come off
as intended on mailing lists.

I have been caught by this myself many times, so I apologise
if I mis-understood your intentions :-).

No worries, we're all just trying to help here in a complex

I don't recall ever telling anyone to use MIT vs Heimdal,
