   Of course.  But it is behavior deserving of praise.  Almost nobody 
takes pride in their work anymore.  I also build all of my code with 
"-Wall" when using GCC (enable all warnings, even the useless ones) and 
work until they are ALL gone.

   People have laughed at me for that...but then I get paid to clean up 
their messes. ;)
