I obviously didn't feel it was unwarranted as I committed it. :-)
But I should have said SUSE and not GNU -- it was SUSE's pigheadedness a
few months before any shipping OS product to refuse to "s/s86_64/amd64/g"
because they "had beta users and it would be too hard on them"... and it
was too hard for Suse's auto-build system to make the change and rebuild
Feh! The number of times in Unix and C and C++ history code authors were
unwilling to change warts and bugs because there were already "20" or
"100" installations really urks me due to their short sightedness. We
now have how many Unix, C, and C++ users??? Compared to Jan 2003, we
have how many more AMD64 users??
