On defense of Jesse, I don't think flames are intended here... Just like in
lfs-book, every little thing is discussed in length in order to do it the
'proper' way. Jesse is just trying to give positive, constructive criticism.

No offense intended :)
PS notice the smiley in his mail!
You're work is certainly appreciated, keep it up!
