Ah, dang. :)  This is the world I live in and love, otherwise we'd all
use G-Mail and not worry about running our own mailservers.  The
standards, more often times, are completely wrong.  That said, I abuse
GNU coreutils heavily :)

Concur and agree.  In this day and age if we can still have "config
classification: kickass-porn,score! get the lotion!,1" you don't have
to worry about change too much.  Of course now that I've pointed
this out prepare for a random social media someone who is perpetually
offended to raise a fuss.  :)
