Aww, and just when the discussions were starting to heat up, you had
to go and splash some cold water around.  :)  I was starting to look
forward to a nice long flamewar and bikeshed coming out of this.

This was one of the nicer AF pranks, as it's a topic (ports reconfig)
that has seen a lot of discussion lately, and the OP included a lot of
seemingly logical arguments why it's (remove OPTIONS) needed, along
with links and citations to back it up.

This one could have gone on all day.  :D  Especially since a few of
the replies played along.  :)

To the OP:  Well done!!
