Hi Grant,

Nice to be back.  I like the shebang notation, makes it easier
to parse source intelligently.  Thanks for the help.  

BTW, is anyone dedicated to security matters in the PLT group?
While v4.0.1.2 was being compiled, I couldn't help but notice
the occasional warnings about dangerous function usage; i.e.,
strcpy, sprintf and the like.  If so, I'd like to hook up with
them and offer to help with a thorough security code audit.
Has anyone ever done some form of automated static analysis?
After a year of being persistently hacked into the dark ages
my interests have shifted almost entirely to developing code
where security is the major design goal.

Thanks again Grant.
