The reason is to get code more readable and thus maintainable. You can compare
in_control() + in_addprefix() in the stable/9 with what we have in head now.
Which one would you prefer to hack on?
I wouldn't claim compatibility for the commands that didn't work very well.
I won't also name Linux, since these commands predate the Linux itself.
Do you use them? Or do you know software that use them?
Totus tuus, Glebius.
