Yep, you can all thank me for lobbying to get this implemented. If you
don't absolutely need this feature (and it's pretty obvious that since
nobody noticed its appearance that nobody really needs it) then don't
mess with it. Please. You can get into all sorts of trouble. It is
indeed the pistol-and-map-to-foot syndrome. But it's absolutely
essential for version control and had to be implemented at the engine
