 Ok, to terminate this utterly stupid and outofplace thread;

 A wordprocessor/text editor that _takes_this_design_flaw_ into account is
a _proper_tool_!! Ok? So a program that takes this this into account shows
that Maurits is right, it _works_around_ a _design_flaw_. A program that
does _not_ take this into account is not a _proper_tool_, and Konrad is
right. Goddamned...
